If the turn was the last card dealt, then yes. But it isn't - in fact, because he's almost 35% to hit his flush by the river, he will make money if more than two people come with him on the flop. This is a clear call.
Joose, I don't like a flop raise, because I want to keep the implied odds up. If you raise here and hit your flush you don't want them to check to you
. You have perfect position, because of the aggressor and the caller in between. If you hit your flush you will be able to trap them both.
Well played, by all accounts. The turn did you bring you another 6 outs, so no doubt about the call there.
One thing, though: This is a $100 NL table. May I ask why your stack was so small? It's okay to play small stacked now and then, but you could have made a lot more money off of this hand if you had had a bigger stack. I generally don't recommend intentionally playing shortstacked since it hurts your implied odds a lot.
