If you raise flop you can fold if he comes over the top. If he doesn't, be wary that he donked and called a raise. Hell most likely check turn, so half pot it. If he comes over the top here EZ laydown, if he c/cs then you likely get a cheap showdown when he checks to you again on the river. Much better than checking back the turn and allowing him to lead river for however much he wants- putting you in a spot where you pretty much have to call off anything <pot
