      Preflop: should I just 3b shove against maniac type players, especially if they are that short?

      Flop:Villain in the CO is absolute maniac but still couldnt call it off on the flop and I cant b/f vs this player and stack size. So if I bet the flop I have to bet/call.

      Also, general question regarding bet sizing against looser players:
      Should we start increasing our 3b'ing size as well as our opening size against such players.

      For example should we start making it 4x (+1x / CC'er) for 3b's

      Hello muel294,

      Against their stacks you can easily do it, with something like KK/AA you could consider making smaller bets.

      But as played, kind of ugly spot having the Ace on board and he definitely has a lot Ax hands in his range but can we fold vs his whole range? Which may contain a lot worse even. :) But of course not a mistake if you do fold.

      Against loose opponents we can easily raise bigger, while they don't adjust anyways.

      Best Regards.
