      Interesting flop spot and weird no members has answered your hand yet last week.
      I expect everyone has missed this until now.

      I would raise the flop with top 2 pair for value as well against the donk lead, but it’s nasty the BTN is committing himself with a cold 3bet. He could have Q9 or 88 and some draws as well, but I don’t think I can fold 2 pair against most likely a fish based on his stats of only 20 hands. If he’s doing this with a random top pair your shove is profitable I think.

      Raise bigger OTF and get it in after his 3bet.

      Flop raise is fine and id just jam once the 3bet comes in .It wouldn't surprise me to much to see a slow played AA or KK, plus he can have a bunch of other worse hands draws top pair etc.. he doesn't look great even though it's only 20 hands. I wouldn't be doing cartwheels and counting the money but i wouldn't be folding top 2 here.

      I would fold this preflop. Yes you get 'great odds' , but you're often going to be dominated and there aren't alot of ways 4way that u can pick up the pot uncontested.
