      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.04(BB) Replayer
      SB ($4.42)
      BB ($16.69)
      UTG ($0.80)
      Hero ($5.10)
      CO ($4.81)
      BTN ($10.32)

      Dealt to Hero K:heart: J:heart:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.16, fold, BTN raises to $0.28, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.76, BTN raises to $1.24, Hero raises to $5.10 (AI), fold

      Hero shows K:heart: J:heart:

      Hero wins $2.54

      84/74/10.7 3bet preflop 53, fold to 4bet 45, fold to cbet 83

      He folds to 4bet often, so I tried to semibluff. If he calls I still can cbet.
      But he min 5-bet, and it looks weak because he 5bet so small. So I tried to push.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Against such a maniac/very loose preflop Caller I'd still look for a bit better hand, he could still Call you with hand like A5o or whatsoever against what you are behind.

      Best regards.

      So when I see such guy at the table, then fold every hand except TT+, AK and try to go allin preflop? And call smal pocket pairs for set value.

      Not every hand but however I would take lot of hands from my stealing range. KJs would be playable but I wouldn't go all-in with it. And also try to have positon over him, for example he would be on SB and minraised you then you can easily Call him and play postflop, I mean Call the $0.12 of course.
