      I am sure i played this hand very poorly. The flop reraise was 2 weak for me not to call but the turn action is where i really do think i went wrong. I was on a monster draw with but 1 card to come. Was this this played wrong.

      This guy was a extremly loose maniac. He had already lost 2 stacks in the last 50 hands. This is main reason why i called with 3/3. I was unsure on my call of the allin and the reraise here. If he didnt have the flush already i didnt want to give him free card for it. He is very loose and will be betting any flop. All this aside did i have the correct eq to call his allin given the chance of him being on the draw or having already made the draw and i needed to hit the fh which is something like 1/3 of time by river.

      Just want reinforcement on how i played this wrong pretty sure i know. Giving a small handle sample against him he was a really tight passive player and was sure he was pushing top pair. What i believe i did wrong was give him the inititive to lead the betting. After seeing his final hand i guess i cant see him laying it down anyway but should have i reraised allin to kill the action on the turn or maybe reraise on the flop?

      1) I don´t like calling re-raise, since you could be drawing very thin if villain has KT. Against overpair you´re not that good favourite and if you hit K or 8, do you think that AA would call you down.
      Turn I like to play c/c, since you don´t have fold equity. If I hit then I can shove, if not, then I can play c/f.
      2) Nh
      3) I´d shove turn. BB won´t bet/fold if he leads pot on the turn. and you don´t fold to any river shove.
