      I would reraise PF - it is nice squeeze situation.

      As you call, this is the flop you are looking for. Bad thing is you are oop (that is why I would reraise pre).

      Why don't you try c/r? I would prefer that, but it is just how I would play. And it also depends on MP2 stats. if he's aggro enough, I would go for c/r. Donking is IMO not bad also.

      Also, I think, calling the turn would be better, when you call his 3bet on flop. It is like 80% of all time he continues with aggression after 3betting flop, and that turn card did not change anything.

      So, call the turn and evaluate river. I would call any non club and non-K river. But I may be wrong.

      I also prefer squeeze pf.
      Since board is very drawy I´d prefer leading out and if he raises then shoving over his raise or 3-betting to 14$
      He can have there a lot worse hands that would raise, since you donked out, so you should be ahead enough times to get all-in postflop.
      since turn is blank I like c/rai instead of c/f, since your hand is too strong
