      Preflop: This is a major question to me. To 3Bet or to call? Villain is definitely calling a very big part of his range that is much weaker than our hand but he might also 4bet (12.5(8)). Postflop OOP without a hit also might cause some problems given his playing style.

      How about calling because he is so keen on multi-barreling with trash? How to decide between the both options?

      Hey Avatars91,

      I would 3bet for sure and if I miss I would X/F because this player is not bluffable and against such a player play fit or fold.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Both options are fine, depends how well you feel in 3bet pots against such opponents. We can as well play this way and most likely I'd also fold it on the flop while not a good spot to float vs that loose opponent. Don't try to bluff a maniac. :)

      Best Regards.
