This is much better.
However, if you want un-biased analysis of your hands, please do not reveal results.
This spot is a bit different. Here we 3b with position, pick up the opener, and we see the flop.
When your opponent donks (leads into you, even though you are the aggressor) into you here, he is most times trying to set his own price to continue. Donks are rarely huge hands, and quite often in this spot would be something like Kd-X hand, 2p, sets, or just plain air. The point being donk bets are either vulnerable hands, semi-bluffs, air, etc. This time your opponent was pretty close to the top of his range I would say. If he flops a flush, we wouldn't expect him to take this line. He would be much more likely to C/R or C/C, than donk, because he won't want to scare you away by betting his flush.
I like the raise OTF. I would have probably done the same thing, given your cards. There are too many dirty turn cards that can kill the action here. However, I wish you hadn't posted the results.
