      Flop: ($5.47) J, 4, 8 (2 players)

      Turn: ($5.47) 7 (2 players)

      River: ($5.47) J (2 players)

      Final Pot: $5.47.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, jacks and nines(9 9).
      SB shows a pair of jacks(5 A).

      Hero wins with two pairs, jacks and nines(9 9).

      Villain has been stealing every button and small blind and also playing like a bit of a maniac.
      Is this too much of an overshove?
      What would be a good 3-bet sizing if so?

      Hello Yoshimitsu77,

      I would have very likely played the same way. There is no point to raise it smaller while he doesn't have much left anyways. If I had here like KK/AA then I'd consider doing that to trap him and force him to shove with worse hands.

      Best regards.
