      Realy! He nearly raised or reraised any pair no matter if he had a good top or button pair, good kicker or not. Here are some hands I played against him, I hope it is okay, if I post them in one thread, although it's a little bit harder for you to judge them.

      This was my first hand against him, I didn't know , that he's such a bad player yet.

      He was UTG. The BB call was horrible but i hoped I could get him out of the hand and get all in against UTG... Well it didn't work as good as I hoped

      1. If I think that maniac would float with any two on the flop I would go c/rai on the turn. He would bet almost 100% here and I have probably 15 outs+ I might be ahead.
      2. I would shove turn. You´re pot committed and don´t see another heart coming on the river.
      3. Re-raise more on the flop. Bet/call turn. He doesn´t have here T all the time :) And if he had T, he would probably donk into turn again.
      4. Flop is very bad for your overpair- you´re almost never ahead here. I would call flop and see what turn brings. Against a lot of action fold is probably better.
