      I got in a very similar situation before a few days, and after discussing the hand in the SH Study Group we came to the conclusion that the best play here is to check behind turn and call almost any river (ofc value rise our flush ^^). This is especially true against more aggro guys.

      I did same thing as you and and my villain would have had 55 in your situation t_t.

      I wouldn't raise flop. He's LAG, let him bet turn with his bluffs if he wants and he may have overpair here, so I think by raising you just isolate yourself against best if his range here.
      As played I would check back turn, you have outs and you have medium hand, but I'm not willing to play big here as I have ~30% equity against 88+ and he won't call it down with blank overcards.

      well raising flop is not the end of world, so I think it is fine play.
      It looks stronger if you call flop and raise your monster draw on the turn, but raising flop is also fine
      When he b/c flop, he very often has there overpair and I think he is not really b/f that if your image is aggressive, so I would prefer checking back turn and then either calling/shoving or folding to his river bet
