      Hello dadaas,

      Preflop: Being 300BB deep I don't like 3betting at all here. We are just putting ourselves into marginal spots as I see postflop when you are going for maximum value with just a pair. I'd rather Call and play postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Do you really think that he is going to pay you 3 streets with A LOT of worse hands? I mean even if he is a maniac it will be hard for him to Call the river for almost full pot size. Therefore I don't like your line at all. At the best I'd bet the river ~1/2 pot size which should be enough and might even invite some weaker PPs to Call.

      Best regards.

      This guy is maniac and he will need to fold lots of hands.

      You are to deep as I said already and can easily even overplay your TP hands as you did postflop. :( Of course it's not wrong to 3bet here but rather questionable.
