      Heya,

      I knew this guy was a maniac, non-stop bluffing so I called him on the turn. I was happy with what I saw, but then he get's extremely lucky :-(! In the future, should I always call the turn or should I fold instead?

      Hi wolle6,

      On the flop, I would like to bet a little bigger (~0.17) because there are possible straight/flush draws on the board.

      On the turn, folding here would suck because you have a strong hand and against, as you say, a maniac most of the time you're still ahead. Too bad he hit his straight on the river. Anyway, nice hand! :D

      Hello wolle6,

      A lot depends on the opponent but of course Calling against such a maniac is totally fine vs his stack. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
