      Same Villain looks loose 49/22 with all kind off strange plays . Befor this hand he mini raised turn 3 times vs me in row ( i folded 2 times AA over pair and QQ over pair on similar bords ) so i decided to finally fight back cause another 6 reduces his number off sets and i beat 2 pairs. He showed up with 26 o so what conclusion could i get from this ?! what mini raise means if he shoves trips ?!

      Usually this is a standard fold but with the history between you it's much tougher.

      If he's goofy, actually pairing cards aren't necessarily going to favour you as shown here. He has so many random 7X/6X hands which could have improved, and don't forget there's 89 as well which he should have every combo of.

      It's hard to draw any sort of conclusion - Maybe he min-raises with bluffs or floats on the Turn, and shoves trips? We need to see the showdown for other instances.

      I think your call is fine, given that you were getting abused 3 times in a row previously. Occasionally you'll find a maniac fish who raises the Turn light with weaker hands and this guy might be one of them.
