      The Flop was calm when the problem was the turn and river appeared to complicate the situation especially against an unknown villain.

      I think you should raise the turn cause you have an overpair and a flush draw and he donks min.

      Imo you should raise turn to 0.7$

      I preferred to control the pot because I do not know if he did that donk bet with a flush draw there was in doubt if i would gave or raised on the turn or controlled the pot

      First off he has 75bb and he's obviously a fish for taking that line, so that's that. From there looking at the board he'll always have enough random Jx/pair+draw hands in his range for taking that line that you'll show a profit by going broke on the turn with overpair+redraw regardless of the times he shows up with a flush (that you could still end up outdrawing on the river).

      Hope it helps.
