You already have a bet, your raise and then a re-raise all in, and a call of the all in in front of you post flop. I am letting this go at this point. If you had paired either of your cards and still had the outs with the flush draw, then I am shoving this right along with you but as played I think you are just spewing chips. You gotta know based on the bet your raise and the shove behind you, that when the money goes in you are behind in the majority of cases, so we are stacking off here with a hope and a prayer. The other alternative would be to ask yourself before you raise, "if I raise and he shoves what am I doing here?" If the answer to that question is I am calling, then shove instead of raise and you get some fold equity out of your shove. But as played, I am folding to the shove.
In the future when posting ha threads, don't post the results and you will get more discussion. I would have stopped the ha at the call by the small blind then ask for discussion on what your best play is at that point.
