Hi, villain is playing 21/16/13 on 22 hands.
I could have folded the hand to the donk bet. But I decided to raise since he could do this to make me fold hands without diamonds. And he could be on a FD so I'd charge him. Since he just called I followed betting the turn to charge draws because a made flush would 3B on the flop. The river shove was weird, but I would never call anyway.
Strange line by the villain.

I'm not a fan of the flop raise. It risks value-owning yourself, because you fold out worse hands, and keep in better hands and decent draws. The sizing is also too small. Villain only needs to call 30c into a pot that will be $1.27 on the turn. That means he only needs 30/127 = 24% equity. He has more than that with any flush draw, and a lot more if he has a set.
Your hand doesn't need "protecting". It's kind of a way ahead/way behind spot. I'd call flop and blank turns, but probably fold the river, as villain is repping a flopped flush or a set. I doubt he'll bet all three streets with a hand that can't beat top pair 2nd kicker.
