      Villain calls you from the big blind then donk bets 66%ish of the pot on the flop which usually signals a lot of strength, he is most likely already holding a set, 2-pair an already made flush or some sort of strong draw.

      You do however have the nut flush draw which gives you 9 clean outs for the best hand. There's also a gutshot but that might not be giving you any clean outs especially in the case that your opponent already has a made flush.

      All of this means that you need to have approximatively 4:1 pot odds, and you get about 2.5:1 here, thus it is a profitable call if you know you can get your opponent to put $0.16 more into the pot, which assuming he already has a strong made hand and you having position on him should be really easy to have happen thus I like your call.

      The turn card, despite giving you a pair should be considered a complete blank in this case. Villain gives you horrible pot odds and you can no longer play this draw profitably. Folding is your only option.

      Hello MeAmor22,

      Seems to be fine and of course vs his line on the turn we can't continue. Well played!

      Best Regards.
