      I know this is not "by the book" and that it's the worst possible hand but I had to play this way with reads that i have on him. He's a real maniac. He saw every flop since he got to table, and minirased every hand. And went to showdown in almost every hand. He had some really, I mean really bad calls, and raises with absolutely nothing

      Never ever ever ever ever play that hand.

      However (we've all done it) when you decide to play back against a maniac/bs artist then you actually have to bet. Re-raising PF would be a good move if you trust your read, but at the very least bet the flop. You have the best hand, and you might as well protect it.

      You can call pf min-raise, but you have to willing to play big pot if you hit 7 or 2, so that´s why I prefer better hand to call hi min-raises.
      I like how you played the hand.
      Unlucky on the river.

      Yeah, that's all, he just got lucky on the river. He hit his 4 outer.

      Searching if he's on the tables now :D
