      If you want to play that preflop just squeeze it, BU is a thief and SB is never strong when he coldcalls there unless you've been squeezing a lot before. It's not strong enough to overcall out of position in my opinion.

      Postflop i would raise the flop, a half pot donk by SB doesn't mean much and BU often has nothing strong enough to continue to a raise given how wide his BU steal range likely is.

      On the turn his raise is scary because he's repping only the Ac, still we have the 2nd nuts and he might not be aware that he is overplaying something else, or he's just so into playing a lag style that he floated in order to rep the flush. I can't see myself folding.

      Hope it helps.
