      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $2.11
      Hero:
      $2.45

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:spade: , Q:diamond:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, BB raises to $0.18, Hero calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.37) T:diamond: , 8:heart: , 8:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.93 (All-In), Hero calls $1.93.


      Villain is maniac 95/82/4.8
      Preflop: my reason for just calling his minraise is that I think a 4bet has a chance of scaring him away, whereas if I keep my strength disguised he is very likely to spazz out.
      Flop: he spazzes out, I guess I have to call here given my plan preflop.

      Hello member001,

      Preflop: Guess against this kind of maniac I'd basically just 4bet and get it in. I wouldn't even be surprised if he shoves with some crappy hand like A3. :D

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to do as you had such a plan preflop.

      By the way did he as well do such 3bets in early game? But I guess he did.

      Best regards.

      Thanks.

      Yes, he had been doing frequent 3betting, min-3betting and all-in moves. Usually people folded so I don't know what cards he had, but unless he was miraculously getting dealt AA every orbit, he was definitely doing it with some crap.

      Here he showed AJo and my Queens held up. :D

      Standard, he will like never shove there with trips or any strong hand. Very easy read on those opponents usually and I do as well snap-call against them.
