      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $10 (100 bb) 20/19/3.5/2.8/36103
      UTG: $15.28 (152.8 bb)
      MP: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (CO): $19.92 (199.2 bb) 93/29/2.3/25.0/40/14
      BTN: $4.85 (48.5 bb)
      SB: $5.43 (54.3 bb)

      A very interesting opponent. He was all over the place shoving left right and center. In just 14 hands that I played he lost 2.8 Buy Ins. Against a very crazy maniac like this is it ok to do what I did with my TPTK or should I wait for something better.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BB raises to $1.10, Hero calls $0.70

      His 3-Bet was kinda expected and I saw myself way ahead of his range so I called since my hand wasn't good enough for a 4-Bet. Besides against a guy like this I think you have a lot of implied odds since he wants to shove no matter what.

      Flop: ($2.25) Q T 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $1, Hero raises to $5.15, BB raises to $8.90 and is all-in, Hero calls $3.75

      Turn: ($20.05) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($20.05) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Depends on the reads, against some you might even just get it in preflop. :) But I do agree that if he was tilty and aggressive then flatting is definitely and option and we are never folding postflop.

      Best Regards.
