      Poker Stars $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -

      BTN: $25.00 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 13, 3B: 5, AF: 2.4, Hands: 324
      SB: $25.00 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 13, 3B: 0, AF: 2.0, Hands: 63
      BB: $38.50 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 17, 3B: 0, AF: 6.0, Hands: 63
      UTG: $22.29 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 20, 3B: 0, AF: 1.8, Hands: 49
      Hero (MP): $39.39
      CO: $13.46 - VPIP: 31, PFR: 29, 3B: 14, AF: 5.6, Hands: 408

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is MP with A :club: Q :spade:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.87, CO raises to $2, 3 folds, Hero raises to $3.50, CO calls $1.5

      Flop: ($7.35) T :club: 2 :heart: 3 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, CO raises to $9.96, Hero calls $6.46

      Preflop I min4bet in order to induce some calls with crap from him and some spazz shoves.

      Postflop I chose to cbet/call as I see him having worse hands than mine here and if he shoves I only need 24% eq ( I have 30% even against JJ). Maybe it would be better to cbet smaller to increase the probability of him raising with air?

      What do you think about check shoving instead against a maniac like this? My assumption is that it would be better since I don't expect him to just give up against a check, so he will prolly take a stab with >90% of his range.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: Most likely I'd still just go for a normal 4bet unless I know that he is 5betting loose or able to ship loose. :P Such a guy Calls us anyways if he is a maniac, no matter what sizing. :D Will be easier for us to play postflop as well (we can ship in case needed).
      Postflop: Check/Shoving works better vs them, so they could Bet their whole range.

      Best Regards.
