      I thought he will give up many hand after 1 burrel and my range is not bad so I called.
      On flop, I now think I have to raise him instead of calldown and turn 4 dia
      is terrble and it's worst play to call him instead of first plan. any leaks?

      Yes, please stop coldcalling preflop , it makes you lose money superturbostyle :(


      I prefer to 3bet or fold preflop depending on stats.

      Furthermore Flop/Turn & Riverplays are also depending on statistics. Versus an unknown I just fold the Flop

      Why do you want to raise? Do you raise as a bluff or for value?

      oh, I forgot villain's stats lol
      ya, it's -ev from unknown view..
      However, 52/37 and AF is 7/2/0 villain often give me money I thought.
      Is it profitable even on MSS's implied odds?
      and it's thin value and protection against such villain but fold against rereraise.

      Against such a maniac, you are way better off seizing iniative and 3bet accordingly to semibluff pre & postflop

      on the topic of implied odds, how precisely do you want to profit from it? What do you want to hit? 5 2 4 flop doesn't happen too often so you need to know the frequencies of hitting


      You say you raise for value, any Turncard is a potential overcard when he calls. Do you just barrel on a T ? If so is that for value again or as a bluff?

      When you play the Flop, the game does not end there so there are loads of Turn & River scenario's where you are just screwing yourself over having just A3s on 4 3 4 board with a Turn & Rivercard to come vs a maniac

      I thought he would cb almost everytime(unless he limped)
      so I can catch bluff with any hand and A hit board I will fold on turn
      more, he often fold on turn I think if called.
      so even only FD, I can call against his CB.

      I said about implied odds because of I don't know FD and bluff catch
      is enough including implied odds with 40BB
