      Both players here were 70VPIP Fish. They usually fold to a re raise on the flop and with the scary looking board (if they don't have a heart) i opted just to call behind to keep in the weaker hands.
      After he bets the turn when the A shows i figure he either has an A or a flush draw. I think he is calling here so i raise to inflate the pot as i think i'm ahead most times here. On the river i just call behind incase he has a flush. I figured if i re raised i'm not going to get called by much that i beat.

      Was this the right play?

      since your hand is very strong on that board, nut flushdraw and two overcards I´d like raising flop and taking initiative. Also you don´t mind playing there for stacks, since you´re equity is around 40-50% if he shoves on the flop, but consider small lead don´t think it will happen too often
      Like your raise on the turn. he would b/c there with worse hands and I think you can call river. He can b/c there with worse hands, but also he can have there two pair or set or even lower flush that afraid to get broke
