Over The Top?

Thoughts, please…

I’m aware just because we won a hand does not translate we played the hand well. Even though this hand-worked out in my favor, I have questions.

Online tournament but did I play this hand too aggressively? I’m second-guessing myself because we started so deep and in the early stages of the tournament.

One important bit of information, VILLAIN#2 tends to donk bet with weak and/or vulnerable hands (HUD Stats) confirm his high donk percentage. Moreover, this player is sticky so I don’t expect much folds unless aggression factor is high.

Curious about the following:
(1) What the HERO’s optimum line from the FLOP going forward should be with such a strong multiway draw?
(2) Should we be playing for stacks with a low SPR?
(3) Should we denying VILLAIN#2’s equity and exercise maximum FE (Fold Equity) with betting pressure and barreling?
(4) Should we be realizing our equity and call Flop, call Turn and bet/raise River?
(5) Ranges are important but I am confident we are drawing to the best hand. Do Ranges come into play for my aggressive line?

Although I won this hand not sure if I played it very good. Advice, please.

    It's quite an interesting problem in that finding the best line against such dreadful opponents can be tricky. I think I prefer just calling flop, and I don't see what your turn shove accomplishes since V2 clearly isn't folding.
