Hows my line? I decided to raise the turn hoping he wouldn't fold an ace so i can get him committed on the river if i hit my flush.

Maybe i should of min raised, the only thing i don't like is im value owning myself vs boats.

I like your line, but we can definitely raise flop for value.
I don't think minraising turn would make a huge difference on villain's decision though.

Not sure about the turn raise I think it would be easier to get value from worst A's and worst flush draws on the river, a worst Ax will be scare of the flush and a worst FD might not call with the paired board.

Edit: also not sure if we can call a shove here,if we add some made flush and sets pretty sure we can't.

I don't think you can win a whole stack here unless river is a king and villain already had a boat on the turn. I think you're definitely value-owning/value-cutting yourself by raising the turn. Most of the time you already have the best hand, and you'll fold out worse. It's kind of a pointless "semi-bluff" with the flush draw, because villain is never folding a better hand than yours, and probably shoves everything better, which likely prices you out of even seeing a showdown.
In short, just call flop and turn and evaluate the situation on the river.
