      Villain is 33/7, AF: 5, 15h

      PRE
      Standard.

      FLOP
      Flop is very dry, he`s probably donking with Qx, 7x, some PP`s. Can`t raise, because I expect him to call all pairs.

      What if I had backdoor FD? I probably would raise his donk.

      TURN
      As bet-sizing increases, can`t do much but fold. Would probably call 1/2 and try to hit A or K. Implied odds would be reasonable, I think.

      i would likely call flop, and only call turn on A/K/J/T cards and depending on bet sizing

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine of course.

      Well, if you think he's only donking Qx/7x why do we call? I think without information against a rather passive opponent I'd just fold the flop here.
      With the backdoor FD I'd be more inclined to raise here.

      As played on the flop, turn is good.

      Best,
      Plamen

      He might be air-balling sometimes, but maybe I`m just looking for excuses to justify a call.

      I would fold if his donk were bigger.

      Sample size is nonexistent, but he seems more aggressive than passive. I think, that calling the flop is not really a mistake.

      Well, if we call the flop then we have to make a plan for the later streets about how to take the pot down.

      I don't really feel comfortable calling him down with A high here without any decent information so taking the safest route looks like a good plan to me.
