      So he's stealing a bunch, that means if you 3bet him he'll have trash and will be forced to give up the hand right there very often. Since you're out of position with a hand that stands to be best preflop but will be a pain in the ass to play postflop with overcards on most boards, i'd suggest you just repop him preflop to combat his blind steals.

      Assuming you called preflop, on such a dry board he'll have nothing most of the time too, so i fail to see what good donking will do us. Unless you have some kind of history that will lead him to raise you with air and you're confident continuing in that spot with 55, you'll just blow him off all the air hands he could have c-bet with on this very good c-betting flop and isolate yourself against Kx or other pocket pairs while being out of position. Overall a bad spot to put yourself into, try and rethink the plan. :)

      Hope it helps.
