      I think that certain picture from veriz would be proper here... ;)

      Against such aggro fishes, I dont like flatting at all, especially with the plan of playing fit-or-fold postflop.
      I'd rather widen my value 3bet range a lot (~ top 10-12% of hands at least), and start punishing him from position.
      This way from the three factors of initiation - position - handstrength, we have the advantage in all three.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      If he is opening like a maniac then rather loosen up your value-range in those spots. And definitely A9s/ATo is a value-range for us vs that kind of opponent. Clearly calling and hoping for a hit wont show up huge profit cause you going to lay down a lot of flops.

      Best Regards.
