      No, i like your reraise there, although a donk bet normally represents a set here. But against his 3bet i'd probably lay it down. Calling isn't a good option imo, cause you commit yourself to the pot.

      You should have folded to a re raise on flop or flat call the flop and wait for turn.

      i would make it 1.4$ on the flop . i like calling his reraise being 2 stacks deep
      being so deep + his 1/2 potsize bet gives you good odds to draw to a flush so i would call turn hoping to hit my flush or an a/k on the river (that most of the times are good against this player loose and aggresive fishes)

      Hmm, let's assume he only had 100bbs. Then wouldnt be better to try to go all-in on the flop?

      Hm, i wouldn't try to get it in on the flop then. You've got a FD with two overcards, but since he 3bets (assuming that he does this with his smaller stack too), you only beat him with the flush so you probably are behind.
      I mean 100bb is still a lot and if he is willing to risk his whole stack, i prefer folding.
      My experience tells me to be careful with that kind of board.
      Some calculations:

      if he has...

      JJ our equity is ~49%
      78o our equity is ~25%

      range: 66-JJ,A7,T9,98,87 ~52%

      Hm, so if he has only 100BB and you reraised him on the flop you have to push due to pot odds with that range, don't you? So probably you're right. :D
      (If the range is correct.
      Even against a tighter reraising range 66-77,A7,98,87 we still have 45%)
