      Hello. You really need to raise his donk bet on the flop. They can do this with draws or even weaker aces... although small hands sample, given his high vp$ip (a better stat here would be cold call preflop raise... knowing how he plays postflop would help too), you probably have a best hand on the flop.

      I don't think such an opponent would play draws aggressively into the preflop raiser very often. . I think he most often has Ax too or some middling pocket pair he's spazzing out with. Since he never raised preflop before, you can't assume he never has you out-kicked either.

      If you think that type of player is very likely to never fold a worse Ax and can play a draw this way, since the board is somewhat drawy, i think raising the flop, getting it in and being happy about it is a fine plan for the hand.

      If the board was somewhat dry like A72 rainbow, or you had seen that player be cautious with TPNK before when facing action, or you don't believe he would play draws aggressively, it might be better to take a passive line so that he could continue to "value bet" worse Ax into you or do stupid stuff with whatever else he's got, as he would probably be either way behind you or sometimes way ahead of you. Once you do that you probably can't fold the river tho, especially since all the draws missed, in case he indeed had one of those.

      Hope it helps.
