      Hello musabasjoo,

      Not really, I wouldn't shove on the flop while we even don't know the opponent. We can easily just isolate ourselves against better hands. Rather play it this way as you did. Although the river is pretty clsoe, we likely only beat bluff there, don't think that he is like ever value-betting any worse flush there this way.

      Best regards.
