      if the /35 is hands played then your sample size is tiny.

      flopping a flush is such a remote chance that you bet it to get paid from a possible draw as someone holding AxAs will shove.

      ok you may be against flush, you still have 6 outs on the flop and 12 on the turn.

      Here's what happened

      Villain checked flop, C-bet on the flop, got called.

      Turn brought a brick, Villain checked and so I shoved thinking he probably missed his draw, he called.

      Oh well, it's poker! as long as this play is +ev in the long run

      just a cooler.
      Flopping a flush is very small % and you shouldn´t afraid that if you have top set.
      I´d played the hand the same way
