      hi
      raise flop and try to get it in if you know he is not folding
      if you dont raise flop then raise turn cuz board becomes realy drawy

      "try to get it in if you know he is not folding" - sorry, I dont understand

      Protection from draws is more important that pot control here?

      If your opponent is maniac then overpair is good enough to to build big pot with just overpiar in my opinion.

      overpair against a station is the nuts . play it strongly
      on the turn you realy want to protect because their are lots of draws and you want to put as much money as you can because most of the time you have the best hand against a player like this ... so charge him for his tendencies (calling station)

      #2

      His range is soooo wide due to his vpip, he can have any kinda hand. You want to get value and protect. I call the flop and raise the turn and get it in.
