      As long as you feel comfortable isolating preflop with a hand like Q9s i like your line, except i would raise bigger on the flop to give him worse odds then 3.2:1 with whatever he has, probably something like $1.20.

      His donk/call check/minraise line doesn't make much sense to me, i would be tempted to go broke there with a better Q. But I'd err on the side of caution with a marginal top pair and fold here without a better read on him.

      Hope it helps.
