      CO bets $0.79, Hero calls $0.79

      River: ($2.37) J :club: (2 players)

      Ok, i have no idea if the way i played this hand is +EV. Especially preflop. Better to shove it all-in? Can i consider folding against this maniac?

      On the turn i think i have the correct pot-odds to call

      better to shove pf, since 99 should be ahead his limp/raising range and he can show up there anything if you have been isolating him a lot
      Postflop I´d also play for stacks with one overcard

      Hello Eyewitness,

      Against Limp/Raise and get it in? I would never do that. It's so often a trap. Without any good reason I am just Raise/Folding here preflop.

      And why do you think he is a maniac?

      Best regards.

      Thanks for the opinions.

      @veriz: You don't see a lot of people 3-beting 11% of their hands on 888 at NL2,and being very aggressive after the flop. That's why i said he is a maniac. This hand he had KdQd.

      But folding preflop saves me from variance, i guess.

      But that's not a standard 3bet but rather a limp/3bet. Also at the best you get a coinflip anyways in those case. And even if you take him as a maniac then against his stack you should ship it preflop.
