      You are right about the flushdraw (and some random gutshots), but you have to balance that with the fact that by betting the turn you are committing yourself in the process.

      If you're gonna bet that turn you're better off just shoving for 1.5x pot, that won't scare him off a draw if he wants to play, it's probably the easiest way to play that.

      As played on the river the flush got there but the A makes it less likely that he has Ax. Getting more than 3:1 odds you need around 23% equity to make the call, and since he could still have some missed gutshot like QT, something like KT or just non-sense he figures he can't do anything but shove with, i'd likely call at that point.

      Hope it helps.
