      My thought process on the flop was: Danger, flushdraw and straight(draw)! All-in for protection!
      Should I've acted differently?

      Why does hero have only 67bb?

      AS played, it's quite tight choice between calling and even folding. That board just hits 2p so well, as well as some JK. So our relative hand strength here is quite poor and when he donks pot on such a board, I think we are never good.

      Pop up your stack to 100bb until the beginning of every hand.

      Raise bigger preflop - like 6bb.

      Without information I would call the flop and fold the turn if the guy pots it again.
      Shoving here is quite bad since it is unlikely for them to call with worse and there are plenty of better hands in their ranges.
