      flop : ugly board, im continuation betting, im getting called.
      turn: hes now betting himself, but not very much, im thinking about that bet as a blockbet to see last card for uncomplete draw, so i decided to raise, but with raising i saw myself as commited, so im shoving.

      good/ bad play ? im tilting after this hand actually :)

      Seeing as he's 13/2 I'd rule out a flopped flush, nutflushdraw at most. His call flop is probably not to scare you away.

      I'd put him on a medium / high pp with a possible flushdraw (so JJ+). Basicly only JJ has you beat, as you beat QQ, KK, AK.

      Just my 2 cents as pokerdonk, but I don't think you played the hand that bad. Now you know his leading out on the turn is a valuebet and he has a made hand, not it down, move on :p

      (and if I'm completely ignorant / stupid, plz correct me, I want to learn too :p)

      I like your reasoning actually, although in my experience most donks:

      - either blockbet all the time or never do it, so it's a bit odd if he's doing that with a flopped flush draw, why didn't he want a cheap card on the flop also?

      - when they blockbet they don't make it half pot, it's very often way smaller than that.

      Given those doubts and the fact that if you're right he can still win, but if you're wrong you're likely drawing close to dead, i think i would just call his turn bet and hope for a good river card.

      That being said i'm sure some donks will play a flushdraw that way and i don't mind your line i think it's best if he's indeed drawing, but his play just strikes me as odd even for a drawing donk.

      Hope it helps.
