    first off, it's not chasing to the river, as you had a MADE straight on the turn.
    After the flop, you had 9 outs for a flush, 3 more for a straight and 3 more for an A (assuming he didn't have one). If the 15 outs after the flop is correct, then you're a 60-40 FAVORITE in the hand.

    Personally, I'd have raised on the turn (incase he had a spade draw).

      You idiot chaser!!! LOL j/k

      Obviously nickolai didn't realize you got there on the turn with your straight (you would be a fool NOT to go to the river with the effective nuts LOL), since you rivered a flush. His implication that you should have folded the hand is lol, absolutely not. With a gut shot, an over, and the nut flush draw, your equity rates to be decent vs. his range. Although tbh I think this is a great spot to semi-bluff raise on the flop rather than call, asssuming you have some fold equity here, as you have decent hand equity to subsidize the bluff.

      I really don't like nickolai's river play at all. The bet is no good, it's neitehr a value bet or bluff (worse can't call and better won't fold). And when he gets raised he's only got a bluff catcher, but it's a spot where unless you're a wild man, you should never be bluffing. I think after he's been called twice, the turn and river are terrible cards, and he's only got 2nd pair no kicker, the river is really a check/fold imo. He can check/call a modest bet, but should fold to any real action as it just seems extremely unlikely his hand is good.

        i check the BB maybe i should raise but i feel im not worried if i miss a flop i was chip leader so i can limp and see 1 for free his flop bet was weak of course he wernt to no my hand but i have crazy outs when i personaly put him on 10 10 or JJ why insult some one when the bets you make dont back up your hand?

        his following comments as some1 pointed i had hit the turn

        "his hitting the gut shot wasnt a good %"
        nickolai693 said, "well the way i loook at it is the chasers like to play weak hands a pray well get ready to call with alot of your chips at this point"
