      Meh, I actually prefer floating here. 2 overcards, BD flush and straight, position. if not for the overcards, raising is probably OK but you actually have the equity to draw to a pair IP plus you can bluff later in some cases.

      You said he donks very often so his range here will be weaker and weaker as the streets progress, why let him put in more money by raising? Use position a lot, get him to play OOP as much as possible, you keep position and equity.

      Allright ;) . So if he bets $2.5 the raise is better because we don't really get the odds?

      Well, given position you sort of need less equity because you play better, more implied odds, less reverse implied odds. Even against that you can probably call, $3 should be borderline but what's also to consider is that the bigger his bet, the more money you pick up when he folds to the bluff and probably the higher chances a bluff works because he gets worse pot odds (he'll just see he has to pay more, won't calculate pot odds).

      QJdd is definitely decent to raise unless it can be played better with a call if you get what I mean. Given good enough pot odds, it becomes too good to raise imo.
