      UTG is a maniac IMO, no stats, but he's minraising and 3betting almost every single hand with pure garbage. I really thought I was ahead preflop and was tired of his crap.

      caloma1 (UTG): $56.10
      Hero (MP): $20.40
      WTF.WasntMe (CO): $20.00
      Chaquito (BTN): $19.37
      SaM_CoN (SB): $19.41
      MIKE_PJ_182 (BB): $25.09

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is MP with K Q
      caloma1 raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.50, 4 folds, caloma1 raises to $2.60, Hero raises to $8.10, caloma1 calls $5.50

      Flop: ($16.50) T 8 K (2 players)
      caloma1 checks, Hero bets $12.30, caloma1 calls $12.30

      Turn: ($41.10) 5 (2 players)

      River: ($41.10) Q (2 players)

      Final Pot: $41.10
      caloma1 shows 2 C A h
      Hero shows K C Q C
      Hero wins $39.05
      (Rake: $2.05)

      I´d likely would just call his min 4-bet and shove over when you hit your top pair.
      5-betting/calling shove is imo too loose, since your hand is not that strong.

      personally i dont like reraising this type of maniac without a really strong premium hand. Maniac will usually re-reraise and will certainly cbet any flop which leaves you with tough decisions if you miss.
      With a hand like AQ, KQ etc i prefer to just call his raise or min raise to isolate depending on position and no. people to act.
      I check whatever flop comes and play to get the money in with top pair +
