      Hero showed 8 A and lost (-$9.80 net)
      MP2 showed 5 K and won $20.35 ($10.45 net)

      Stats is 98/53.
      He minraised with gutshot and FD twice and I thought I would make other villain fold so I bigbet.
      On turn I thought I have good odds against this villain considering pod odds.
      Is it profitable?

      Hey,

      So you mostly play against a player in which you have no fold equity. Then it makes no sense to 3bet A8o preflop here. Furthermore it makes no sense as well to raise the Flop most of the time as he simply ain't folding

      Even if he has a pair of deuces, you are far far behind. The correct strategy against this allround maniac is just to sit back and hit hands on the Flop so you can punish him for playing J2o or something while you have AJ on Jxx Flop

      Best regards,
      Gerv
