      He is a maniac.

      He openraised 24o on UTG, and showed his hand.

      He calls or raises very much.

      Hello newsat,

      Preflop: As you say he Calls and also raises a lot, then why do you want to play against him in bigger pot, I'd rather play against him in smaller pots and if we hit hard, then try to play against him. Doesn't make sense to 3bet against him if it's hard to get off his hand postflop, also we wont go broke if he decides to 4bet.

      As played
      Flop: As we decided to 3bet with such a hand then likely we also have to go broke on such a flop against that kind of opponent. What else do we want to hit if not TP in such a situation.

      Best regards.
