I'm confused
Nice hand.

Stright flush draw, I think you should have pushed the flop and insured seeing both cards. You had to be the favorite then.

1) Fold Pre-Flop, your hand is garbage unless your on the button/sb.

2) Calling the flop is terrible, this is a definate raise here, all-in on the flop.

Nice hand btw.

chaser...

Absolutely nothing wrong with chasing - with that flop, I think you only have two choices - all-in or chase it all the way down. I personally prefer the way you played it, but I'm pretty sure the consensus around here would have been to raise or push on the flop. I've always preferred the cautious approach (and yes, I have been burned by Maniacs before, but I've also saved myself from dying on aggressive plays before).

no, calling the flop is okay with 3 people behind you that might help sweeten the pot. if someone behind you raises on the flop, i can see the argument for pushing. but with the possibility of 900 more in the pot, i can definetly see cause for calling here, being as you are ahead of anything except AcKc.

you have tons of equity, and with that many people in the pot - you want to get as much money in it from as many people as possible. if your flush and straight are both live (someone else isnt drawing to the Ac for the nut flush and someone doesnt have 10/9 or K/9 with redraw to the FH) then you are a huge favorite and have like 60% equity i think. 6 people all calling with you can be scary on a paired board, but in a turbo especially i think you did the right thing.
