      Hi,


      You shouldn't raise that flop unless you put him on mostly draws and trash hands, in which case nothing much changed on the turn so you shouldn't be folding to his 1/4 pot lead. I very much doubt you can suddenly put him on Jx because he called your raise and donked again, but if that's your read then fine. I would probably just call the flop and reevaluate, a small but not minimum bet from a fish doesn't yield as much weakness as that of a tag would.


      Hope it helps.
