      Hello Tosh5457,

      Not vs his sample size. We might at the best get a coinflip. He ain't gonna continue with a lot worse anyways unless he is some kind of spew-monkey. :D Although his stats may indicate even to that according his VPIP/PFR.

      You have been playing with him some hands, how did he look like?

      Best regards.

      I can't remember, it was some hours ago :P

      Would you consider 4betting if he had a 3bet of BB vs steal like 20%? That doesn't influence much his shoving range against a 4bet though, right?

      Well the problem is still the sample size which I don't really like. Although taking into account really such maniac stats then I guess it shouldn't be even that wrong.

      As far I understand he has been depending all his BBs. :D

      So would like to call here veriz? If so what is your plan on different flops? surely we have to find flops to make a move on as playing fit or fold would make calling the 3bet -ev. This is why I would be more inclined to 4bet but as shown it is marginal and just folded AK to the 3bet is bad because if we fold AK we must be fold >95% to 3bets which is ridiculously exploitable.

      Each way seems to have it's issues... ?(

      For the given stats and if he really has been a maniac then I'd just 4bet and get it in. As you see the guy has been depending like 83% of his BB. Which is just huge.

      Also if I would even Call it here then I'd play back exactly on those boards when he even is doing a small CBet. I'd definitely float and reevaluate it on turn. Such boards miss his 3bet range very often.
