      Hey malcolmlinco,

      Preflop is fine.

      Usually villain indicates strength when he donks flop into preflop 3bettor. The reason you raise monster draws is because you hope you have some fold equity. You probably don't have any in this spot, the best option is to flat.

      As played even if villain has AK/AQ you have 47% equity. You can't fold because there is already a bunch of money in the pot. I would just shove the money in. At least there is a chance villain has a worse flush-draw this way.
