      I would definitely cbet. There is an Ace! Would you cbet if you hold an ace? I guess so. So, represent that.
      And even CS can lay it down from time to time looking at the ace. And actually, he has 53% fold to cbet. This is IMO enough to cbet this flop.

      On turn, I would be inclined to fold although I agree his donkbet seems weak. I think 66 is behind too often, but I may be wrong. Also I do not believe you can go to showdown cheaply:
      * calling turn, would you call river?
      * re-raising turn means to turn your hand into pure bluff. Only better hands will call, Not sure how many of his better hands will fold. Probably middle pair hands.

      I think your line is correct.

      these players would play straight forward and when they bet turn, they have hand that likely would bet/call and c/c river
      SO I think folding turn is better option
      And I like c-bet flop, since you take it down enough times to make c-bet profitable
