Attacking Weak Donks

In a recent hand, I was preflop raiser, and saw what I knew to be a weak donk bet. With deep stacks, ie 200 BBs.

My question is when should I attack? Raise the flop, or wait until turn?

raise flop, usually barrel a lot of turns, if in fact it he has a weak range.

If by "weak" you mean "small", my default is the treat it as a check and go from there.

+1

Sometimes min/small donkey increases fold equity for me.

Was weak in sizing, and in a position where I knew Villain had no real values leads, the board was T22 Rainbow. I knew Villain would check his 2's, So he was capped to small pairs and Tx.

I guess the flop is time for aggression based on current responses.

Yeah if as I'm assuming you're attacking to take the pot away with little equity. Just calling a "weak" donk is weak. By calling you're capping your own range. So to win pot as a bluff I'd 2B any weak donk. Treat it as a check.
