      BB: $1.81 (90.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $5 (250 bb)
      MP1: $1.19 (59.5 bb)
      Hero (MP2): $7.76 (388 bb)
      MP3: $3.91 (195.5 bb)
      CO: $1.34 (67 bb)
      BTN: $2.12 (106 bb)
      SB: $1.06 (53 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J J
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, MP3 calls $0.08, CO calls $0.08, BTN folds, SB raises to $0.46, BB folds, Hero raises to $7.76 and is all-in, MP3 folds, CO calls $1.26 and is all-in, SB calls $0.60 and is all-in

      The situation was really strange on this table.

      SB was a real gambling maniac (82/36 per 45 hands), huge raises, all-ins with nothing and the whole thing. I had to add 100bb more to my stack earlier to extract maximum from him (and I managed to get some), hence my big stack. His play probably attracted some regs at the table, so I had to get the rest of this donk's money before everyone else.

      I make a standard raise preflop, get called twice and the maniac comes over the top. Now I'm thinking I want it in with him, but there are 2 callers behind me. I had a small sample on them, but they were a bit on a loose side. My reasoning was if they had a better hand than mine, they should have 3bet me earlier. Still a bit risky move, but I shoved, hoping my $7,7 would psychologically scare the callers. I am taking shots at nl5, so wouldn't mind losing some money here on a suckout.

      Good play?
