      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.

      I was sure he have king, was hoping like KJ KT. But tell me why dont you like light 3 bet here?
      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.
