      I wouldn't donk the flop, you have a strong hand, the draws shouldn't be favouring your opponent, who is the PFA, by the way, so you should let him bet the flop.

      If the drawy nature of the board bothers you, c/r the flop, and go for getting it all in as soon as possible. But donking this small amount won't do anything of value. It will encourage him to call, without protecting or pot building.

      As played bet more on the flop, but really, c/c or c/r.

      Turn, either c/r here or bet near potsize. As it stands, if he holds something like the AK or AQ spades, his odds to call are tremendous, and when he raises the completed draw on the river, he either has the flush or a bigger set, I would think, which means Aces. That is such a value raise.

      So from the beginning, my choice here would be let him bet the flop, then c/r for value. With him holding an overpair, you will be called, and may even get all in while clearly holding the best hand.

      I'd c/r the flop; however, if you bet you should bet more. Also, the turn bet is too small. River is fine.
