      about 30 hands on both and they had like vpip 58 and PFR 14 both donk has like 71 donkbet stat on flop (but those are just couple hands to analyze stats overall)

      Main question is - is it even profitable to iso if we look on stack sizes? i think fold was good becausde there is not much left behind effective stacks if i call, so call is not an option and there is no EV for shove.

      Yes its profitable to iso raise on the flop because most of the time they either flop pre flop or on the flop to a cbet. And against the villain who likes to donk we can often also raise him.

      This is about the worst board you can get and hits the ranges of both utg and mp and I don't think you have fold equity to raise. On top of that him Donking from the utg into 2 players signifies a stronger hand. Something like a pair or draw that isn't goving up to a raise. I would however raise here with top pair for value and fold KQ. On top of that he's also pot committed so I think fold is the best option.
