      I think pre flop and flop is pretty standard. But when he just pot donks it on the turn, what do we think his range is? I really didn't know what to make of it while playing, so decided I might have some fold equity and just jammed with the gutshot, flush draw and overcard (which may or may not be worth anything).

      Is that fine? Is calling better? Is folding better? I really am still puzzled...

      I think shoving the turn here is quite bad, as I don't really think we have any fold equity when he plays like this, and with A high we are rarely ahead here.
      So, as we have a very good draw, we are IP and he still has 35bb left, I would call here and reevaluate the river.
