      Sure, it looks like he has a higher flush. I don't know him but most players simply aren't shoving a worse hand for value there, and unless they're psychotic they aren't bluff-shoving there either, it's really hard for them not to have a made hand when they get to that point unless they turn something like QJ into a bluff, which nobody will do at nl25.

      Worth noting that 54s probably isn't the best hand to play that fast out of position when you're deep with villain, low draws lose a lot of value when it usually takes a better hand for your opponent to go broke with his entire stack. Other details that would make me fold that under the gun include the BB behind really short, if he's a fish and not a shortstacker playing 54-high against him is going to be a pain as well.

      Hope it helps.
