      Hi DrRaab,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think we can definitely raise the flop for value and protection and I can't see why you would just call. Same for the turn given how many draws are possible.

      Would you raise a hand like JJ, or KK, or AA?

      What's the difference between those hands and 99 when you don't expect villain to have anything better than 99?

      When im donked into i tend to tread more carefully. If i was reraised after raising the donk bet would it be better to fold? as at best im flipping with a flush draw? But what do you think?

      Yes, without info, I treat donk/3-bet as a strong hand and fold as well unless we hold a strong hand.
