      Don't ask me why I donk'd.
      I don't know.
      He even CBets 80%, and that's more than enough for making me not fear his lack of CBet.
      These donk bets are killing me. Everything in my brain tells me not to, NOW, but not on the tables, I must be careful!

      Should I ever find a fold on the turn?
      Should I have found a fold here because we were deep?

      Truly fucked myself here did I.

      I don't think donking is that bad but given stack sizes as well, I think check/calling all the way would be my play. I don't think people stack off worse than 9 high flush here too often. They have 3 better flushes with quite a few combos starting from the flop.

      On the turn, you are now beat by fullhouses as well so I think as played turn is a bet/fold as weak as it sounds. You don't beat value range and have no redraw. He is never bluffing there after calling flop and raising turn imo. A tough fold since you have a flush but if you think of it it's not at all difficult to spot.
