      I just fold on this ugly flop against the donk bet. If I'd raise and he calls I am done with the hand if I don't improve.

      Best regards,

      he has a FD + 2 overs, I make a big raise on the flop and call if he shoves, I think you'll have pot odds for the FD

      I raise flop bigger to give him a chance to fold. As played I take the free card on the turn. I can't see many hands he'll continue with on the flop that now will fold turn to what we're represtenting, seeing as how most pair+gutshots/OESDs got there and he'll also have two-pair a bunch of the time. Just check behind and hope to hit the flush. We have too much equity here to risk getting shoved on but not enough to get it in.

      Since you have nut flushdraw then calling is probably better than raising, since it is hard him to fold anything to your potsize bet.
      If you´re going to re-raise then make it at least 6$.
      Check behind on the turn seems right. He won´t fold if you bet and he would easily shove, so you don´t have enough fold equity.
      If you improve you can always bet/shove/call river.

      But a flop raise gave him a free card on turn. Shouldn't be a flop raise be better than a call just for this reason?
