      Not sure what to do here. I went for a line of maximum protection on draw heavy board. Wondered whether I should have done a bit more potcontrol since he showed a lot of aggression.

      BB likely holds here two pair, so I don´t mind sometimes call turn and fold to river shove, although shoving turn is also fine.

      Why do we think two pair?

      My main thoughts were either flush/straight draw or set.
      One of which I need to raise up to protect, other I am way behind.

      Not many players are capable of double-donking you on a draw. Unfortunately 27 hand sample isnt enough to pin BB as a fairly passive (1.5 AF) player, but im still thinking of taking a passive line after being donked. BB's own donk is about fair odds for a draw (just under protection) so im thinking check-call and in future check-fold if an obvious draw hits (spade, another connector), check-call if not.

      Donk bets intimidate me too much to play re-raise/call here. Perhaps I might play re-raise flop for info if I think donk bettor is capable of a donk-bluff then playing check-fold turn.
