      The BB overcall looks like a trap to me. I've seen it loads of times. What can hold a fish that calls a 14 BB reraise OOP and leads that flop? Aces or kings I'd say, but maybe I'm a bit paranoic.

      I think you need to raise way more preflop, with a raiser and two cold callers. The odds for BB are attractive, and MP2 gets insanely good odds to call as well. You don't really want a multiway pot here.

      If you'd made the preflop call more of a challenge, you would have a better idea of his hand strength postflop.

      As it is, the donk would be kind of strange with an overpair like AA or KK, given that you are last to act, and will almost certainly bet. He can't really be protecting an overpair against your draw, as you most likely have a premium pair or AK, AQ type hands.

      He may do this with 88-JJ, or some suited hands which he wants to represent as made, hoping to push you off AK.

      It is a strange line to play anyway. I think I would play as you did, and take a note on him.

      Im also making it around 9.
      BB is actually in a pretty bad situation with his mid-str hands, and his hand is never AA/KK.
      So snap-shove the flop.
