Pre-flop looks pretty standard. I like that you are raising and I think the size is totally fine.
I don't really understand your raise size on the flop. Its is more than 10x the donk bet and more than pot. Its so large that players should probably be folding out most of their range here. You are trying to get value from worse pairs like a 5, 66, 77, 88 etc. Why bet so large that they might not call? And then if they do have a 3 or a boat you just get yourself owned.
I'd raise to something like 45-60 and entice those weak hands to call, and probably stack off on the turn anyway. On the turn, you really aren't folding. If they have a 3, TT, or a boat so-be it, SPR is too low and were playing against fish. I like everything but flop raise sizing.
