      Hero MP2 A :diamond: J :diamond:

      Flop ($4.75)
      J :heart: 4 :diamond: 10 :diamond:
      UTG raises $1 , MP2 raises $4 , UTG calls

      Turn (12.75) 7 :spade:

      River (24.75) A :spade:
      UTG all-in $54.04 , MP2 folds ( times out )

      The guy is a manic but still hard to put him on a hand and these players will call all in with over cards etc,

      one of the problems with Titan is that you dont have bank time and with some tables like this one have about 10 seconds to act

      This guy was from France but a lot of Swedish players use the same tactics of calling & pushing the river and never sure where you are with them

      Raise more preflop. I don't like your turn bet: you are often ahead, but how would you react if he c/r you big (e.g. all-in)? You have TP which may be good, and the nut-FD - but you can't call... I check behind the turn and bet for value on the river. As played, its a fold, unless I know he may push crap.

      You folded two pair against maniac:)
      As played: raise more on the flop- maybe 5-6$, you´re going all-in here against lag.
      I like your turn bet and you can call shove, because you have the nut flush draw+ tptk.
      Easy call on the river, he could do that with any two pair. Sometimes he shows KQ, but I´ll take that risk.
