      bet flop bigger 1.35-1.40. since there is a maniac as you said. we want to protect vs draws, and since villain will likely call a ton, we should make him pay for it.

      turn just jam it in. nh!!

      Hi Restart,

      As it had been mentioned already just bet flop bigger and then we can just ship turn.

      Well played overall.

      Isn't the call to MP's raise a bit marginal, considering his range and that there is also the maniac in the BB who can sometimes squeeze big?

      pre call is marginal, afterwards hand just plays itself

      personally id rather 3bet or fold it

      Sorry dudes but i dont give much credit to his raise knowing who he is,and my hand isnt that good so,why not call 20 more cents to see if i stack him off?

      I agree with bet bigger on flop.thanks

      We are playing 5 handed with a big fish behind so as long as he doesn't 3-bet big every time he 3-bets we can call here and try to play postflop.
