      He was a maniac, so I thought I would shove, although preflop he scared me a little with his 5bet(!).

      if he is a maniac shove all in pre flop!!

      a maniac will not stop to be aggressive at the flop!
      and if a A or K come on the flop you will have no clue where are you at!

      ship it! in my opinion

      did he make a habit of these minraise lines? min3bet and min5bet are very very often AA unless you know better, if he wanted his usual fold equity he would most likely raise bigger

      Hello Gloryne,

      Well, against a maniac I doubt that I am folding it either preflop or postflop. :) Also going broke. Although I guess I'd just 6bet and get int in. :D

      But obviously I am kinda scared of the min-5bet but if he is a maniac then I expect even to do that with weak hands this way.

      Best regards.
