      This hand have nothing to do with me but i have a question.
      The REG MP3, called the shove from the maniac
      Maniac stats is 54/49/57.1%3bet, 12 AF over 40 hands.

      Why did the reg called, it is a +EV to call this kind of shove from the Maniac?

      I like MP3 3-bet for value with AQ, since there are two other people, then I understand his check, but once maniac shoved and SB folded I can see why he decided to call.
      BU would shove there quite wide range, what also includes a lot of draws that AQ is ahead at. Also if he has some kind of pair, AQs with bacdoor flushdraw has around 25% equity.
      Since pot was too big I think he found crying call that spot (I would likely not have called without history)

      best regards,
