      Hey RazDirk,

      Preflop is ok, I might make it a little smaller vs an early position opener so you don't isolate yourself only against very strong hands.

      When SB bets pot on the flop it's usually a sign that he has a strong hand (or that he is representing one). For this reason I might flat the flop to help keep his range wide and let him continue bluffing if this is the case. Villain can easily have 22/44 when he donks like this, maybe even K2s/K4s (your player search suggests he may be a recreational player).

      As played you can't really fold on the turn. You have less than a pot sized bet remaining and your hand improves to TPTK. There is also a pretty decent chance opponent would have shoved his sets/2pair on the flop vs your raise.
