      BTN jrdan190 ($3.10)
      SB xabitriple ($7.05)
      BB Hero ($4.96)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 4 players) Hero is BB K:spade: 2:diamond:
      theray16 calls $0.10, jrdan190 calls $0.10, 1 fold, Hero checks

      Hero bets $0.30, theray16 calls $0.30, jrdan190 folds

      Turn: 9:spade: ($0.95, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, theray16 raises to $1.50, Hero ?( ?(

      Villain is a maniac pre flop but very passive pos flop

      67/41/0.8/57
      VP/PF/AF/WTSD

      I think he'll raise pre flop with the hands that have me beaten most of the time (like 99, 88, 22, K9, K8) and will just call with draws. What should I do at this situation? Is it possible to fold this hand against this opponent?

      tyvm!

      Hey viccini,

      I will get this in versus a maniac 99% of the time unless I know a maniac only raises the Turn with better 2pairs which is quite unlikely here. You have too much equity here to bet/fold or bet/call so bet/shove is really the only line you can take here

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      my logic tells me that he must hold 22, 88 or 99 to beat you. If he had he wouldn't limp preflop. I think best he had was 89.
      or he could have been trapping you :)
