      No, definitely not!
      Your opponent doesn't call your bet on the flop with absolutely nothing.
      Ace high is not really a monster hand here and a Q or a T is a likely holding of your opponent which he is never going to fold to your bet.
      As it turns out he had a straightdraw, so he would have called almost any bet on this limit anyway.
      You are happy to see a free showdown with Ace high here as you would've won the pot if he missed his draw.
      Overall the hand is well played.

      Good luck!
