      Raise to $1,2 preflop.

      I do not like your shove on the flop. You are favour against flush draw and you do not want to chase them out but you want to give them wrong odds to call. By shoving preflop (three times larger than pot), you usually chase worse hands (including flushdraw) out. But you want them to pay you. You should have bet $4,5. It is 6-way pot and you might be behind on the flop (set, two pair).

      This is not great spot, since it is very multiway pot (6-way pot). But in generally if you bet, flush draw may reraise and this is what you want, to get flush draw all-in on the flop. By shoving you will not achieve that.

      Once you shove it is very hard worse hands to call.
