      Hey Legand,

      I would just raise flop and go from there. I would take any opportunity of a playable hand to raise a donkbet and try to define his range for the future. Your hand is a bit weak to call anyway with just 2 overs and BD flush.

      Oh ok raise flop? Generally i tend to stay away from raising donks because I feel that it isolates me against better hands but then there are a lot of turns that I can barrel when he does call.

      Cheers

      Yeah, it doesn't iso you when you bluff plus they bet/fold quite often. In this case, like you noticed, you have 2 overs and a BD flush, which is decent equity when you get called.
