When opponent donks into you on the flop, raise him. 3x his bet.
As played, I don't mind folding the turn, but let's think about his range here...
He probably has Jx-Xc in his hand. The donk lead OTF says something, he's weak. I wouldn't expect him to do this often with any Kx. So, for the sake of argument, let's just remove Kx from his hand. That leaves us with Jx and FDs. I'm kinda right down the middle with this one. He could even have QQ rarely.
I think there are still enough hands in his range to warrant a call, but don't be shocked if V has a flush here.
I'm leaning towards a fold, but call is possible. Does he really just spaz out with a flush like this? I think he has Jx-Xc, pair of jacks with club draw (not made flush yet on the turn).
Man, I could go either way on this one. Let's hear some comments from other members.
Raise the flop as played. 3b bigger PF.

Raise more preflop (0.18$-0.20$).
Flop is meh. You could raise his donk bet or you could flat it. A donk often indicates weakness (but not always). I'm fine with just flatting.
Turn: once the flush comes in, it limits the amount of donk hands we're still ahead of to pocket pairs and Jx. I don't mind the fold to the massive overbet. Could very well be the flush trying to get value from AK.

Looking back I think a bigger 3b pre would of been good it scares off a lot of weak kings and Jx as you say.
Still unsure on the fold hence why I had to post to get opinions lol
Wasnt too worried about the flush, figured the overbet was a king going for max value obviously got the opposite but kind of play I see a lot at 2nl cant remember if this was zoom or not either.
