      this guy almost raises with every single hand, he managed to reach 600 BB deep ($300) but eventually lost it all. I think I lost quite a bit of money to him because im not too experienced in playing against maniacs.

      he usually open raises or cold calls with 75% of his hands. he is capable of floating as long as he has a pair (bottom pair) does his minrR smell like a monster?

      should i flat with AQ and AJ (from blinds)? i keep finding myself in such situations against this guy. he refuses to fold and i always end up losing a huge pot on the turn

      Nah, dont flat AJ / AQ. Do what you did, which is re-adjust 3bet range.

      vs 93 84 you can 3bet everything youd steal with (25%) and 4bet everything youd raise with in MP (12%), shove anything youd 3bet vs normal players.

      As played, dont even cbet against such a player. Value bet if you hit the flop then check-call or check-raise turns from OOP. TPGK is enough to play stacks.

      77 hand: vs a real maniac I would get it in on turn, but if you call turn you have to call river aswell.


      QJ: 3x call is fine.

      AK: If you know he likes to c/r those boards, why do you cbet if you dont want to get it in?

      A7s: fold or raise turn, never call.

      AJ: 3bet bigger OOP preflop vs this maniac. check/fold or check/raise flop.

      hi,

      1) I shove turn because river can get ugly

      2) cheap calldown is good here

      3) so I c/f AK here if hes c/r you

      4) I lead out flop, and maybe even shove if re-raised
      you cant call turn

      5) c/f flop against him, or c/shove (little bit overplaying)
