      I'm still beginner but...

      Given the villain's VPIP and PFR range I think it's OK that you called on Flop and Turn.. but you could have raised on the flop IMO, and find out how strong his cards are, since you do have two pair at the flop and also to protect from the draws (if he was playing suited)... but like I said, I'm still beginner...

      doesn't seem like a huge maniac for me, more like good aggressive player. :f_biggrin:

      i'd be rather looking for turn cbet, turn af(q), showdown percentages and such. think it's usually a fold ott
      that said, given the whole hand his line looks like JJ :f_biggrin:

      Hello burgermeister,

      Already on the turn you have to know that he barrels a lot. I'd rather advice fold with the overcard on board, what's the purpose of calling there? If he is super aggressive then he will just shove the river as well.

      Best Regards.
