      My questions regarding this hand are posted for my future actions against this kind of players. What range should I play against him in the future?

      His stats: 528 hands
      20/18/6,3af/ 86 sb fold/88bb fold/ 33 4bet (6hands)

      my notes on his:
      1) he r KK mp, sb (loose) and bb call, flop 8JJcch c-c, he cbets 3/4, sb calls, turn 5c (FD possible) sb donks 1/3 he calls, river 6 sb donks 1/3 he calls (overpair KK)
      2) utg raise, he 3bets KK mp, sb (loose) call, utg fold, flop T55hhd sb donks 1/5 he raises pot, sb raise-shoves 60bb, he calls (overpair on flop)

      He seemed like a good player to me. There is no way I was thinking of folding my hand here but it made me think what is his range here? I stole his bb 3 times in a row (when there was no raise before me) and he fold it immediatelly. Since I have good hand I want to get it in preflop but I was thinking of just calling his raise and playing him OOP postflop. I would probably fold this flop and for sure on this turn.

      My range for him doing this is very narrow:
      6,3% 3bet = 99+, AQs+, KQs, AQo+, KQo
      Therefore I would narrow his 5bet-shove to AKs(o) and TT+. 500 hands is not 10k but it's a good indicator for an opponent. I was really surprised when I saw his hand, have I misinterpreted some of his stats or he just tilted/was fed up of stealing his blinds?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Well, first what I would consider doing against those maniac 3bettors I'd min-raise against them. So it would give us a lot room for loose 3bet call.

      But going broke against him most likely the range you gave is good enough even. If he is really such a maniac. I wouldn't go broke any looser since then it would be pretty much flipping anyways. Usually I would rather just Call and play postflop with for example broadways.

      Best Regards.
