      Did i play this okay? To be honest i thought i was trapping with the best hand til he called on the turn, but maybe i should've been more worried about overpairs and sets (and maybe 87s??)

      Howdy,

      I think you can raise flop, because he may donk with a worse hands and you have the best hand most likely. It may depend on your reads in him of course, but I assume standard halfstack on NL2 is going to play random hands and often make moves that's not going to make sense.
      Raising flop would leave easier decision to turn as you could stack him off easily.

      Good luck!
