      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, A.
      3 folds, BU raises to $0.17, Hero raises to $0.50, BB folds, BU raises to $1.70, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.55.

      I have 92 hands on this guy.
      He raises 100% from B and 100% from SB , hes 4betting% is 50 ( never seen this high before).
      My dilemma here was to push or fold and I decided for second one, although of beeing little sorry,but ditdnt want to risk anything.
      What do you think ?

      Against a maniac like this you can't really 3-bet and then fold to a 4-bet. I think you should either flat call (if you're not prepared to get it in) or 3-bet planning to 5-bet shove when he 4-bets.

      Hello Sinnology,

      Since you somehow know his stats and are kinda expecting him to 4bet there, then I don't really like the 3bet/Fold. With 3bet you should have the plan that you also are ready to do broke against his range. But if you don't feel that comfortable then rather just Call it and play postflop, although it wont be that easy being OOP.

      Best regards.
