      I wouldn't raise the turn but let him bet into you like you did ... if you raise you don't exploit his tendency to bluff every trash he holds.

      Also, why do you open 89o in CO vs a maniac? Shouldn't you play a little tighter against him, 89o being loose to begin with? Or is it correct here to always isolate him in every hand possible? I like to go the safe route and tighten up a little bit and take his money with a made hand.

      Hello daisuke3823,

      Raising turn wouldn't achieve much. But before even getting to turn! Fold flop!? Why would you call the flop with just 9 high FD. :( You are never ahead if you even hit your flush, so I don't like your play at all even vs maniac.

      Best Regards.
