      I would definetely reraise this joker preflop. As played, I'm check/folding the flop.

      Dont bother playing WA/WB vs a maniac unless you are prepared to stack off with whatever it is you hold.

      Hello,

      Very good spot to 3bet preflop against such players, they will very often lay the hand down here or just fold to a CBet on flop. And ye as played flop, I would likely prefer to Check/Fold and not take a risk to play against such opponents. Sure we can be ahead but we are still risking with a lot of money, we need pretty good reads on him to make such play profitable.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
