      Preflop too high a raise (was taking position into account). Otherwise turn is iffy.

      Hello Greedyfly,

      What's your plan if he bets bigger on the turn? :) What hands do you beat on the river? Most of the draws completed. Do you even think he could ever bet for value with Kx?

      Best Regards.

      I guess if he ships it on the turn I can fold. But playing any two suited though?!?...I know they do down here but why? And if that's the case I am pretty much folding to any 3 suited cards on any board the maniac fish bet at. How on earth am I ever expected to make or get value from my hands if all I am ever looking for is non scary flops and monsters (in my favour).

      As for beating I guess worse Kx. J/10o (this is what he was holding) or other busted straights.

      Well, Check/Calling and turning your hand into bluff-catcher isn't an option either while you don't even know the opponent. :)

      Bet/Bet/Bet here while such an opponent will have a lot worse hands in his range there if you think you beat his betting range.
