      Hi,


      Shoving the turn wouldn't have made any difference against a good player because of pot committment. Against a bad player tho, he might get afraid on some river cards and decide to fold to keep his last $0.5 even if he's getting 10:1 or something.

      Him having a made flush is a lot less likely than him having a random 1 card club draw, i'd just shove the turn since i can't fold top two against that guy anyway.


      Hope it helps.
