      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL (6 max) FAST - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 42.68 BB
      SB: 677.08 BB
      Hero (BB): 190.04 BB
      UTG: 78.12 BB
      MP: 137.12 BB
      CO: 104.36 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has A:club: 8:heart:

      fold, MP raises to 8 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 18 BB, MP calls 10 BB

      Flop: ($9.10, 2 players) A:heart: 6:heart: 3:club:
      Hero checks, MP bets 18 BB, Hero calls 18 BB

      Turn: ($18.10, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP bets 101.12 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 101.12 BB

      River: ($68.66, 2 players) 4:club:

      Hero shows A:club: 8:heart: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 28%, Flop 20%, Turn 7%)
      MP shows J:diamond: A:spade: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 72%, Flop 80%, Turn 93%)
      MP wins 262.64 BB

      The guy is total maniac. Sometimes he limps, sometimes opens 3bb, sometimes 30bb, depending on the mood, but I think he plays totally random.
      His VP is 75%. So I called him, I think I dominate his range, and hit nicelly.
      He is also aggresive postflop, and called once deep stacked push with A2o only one pair 22. So I just called all streets.
      My question is if I should get in the trouble with him with hands like this, and call all streets if i hit?

      did you call or 3bet him? I don't think you should be playing this hand at all vs a 8BB open OOP. the right adjustment is to just tighten up.

      as played you'll have to go with your read. the overbet looks really strong but if you say he's crazy then call you must.

      Mistake, It was a 3 bet. The thing is I wanted to play against him, because it is fast forward table, so I don't have very often nice hand against him, and he is a perfect target with 75% VP and maniac.
