      He was real maniac playing 70/31/2.1 over 260. I have seen hem bluffing before with air or raising spots like this with A high but he always raised more in those cases, about 4x original bet. Can I consider this read and fold to his small raise here ?

      Nah.. I don't think you can fold based on that read. You gotta go with your hand on this board IMO. If he does have you beat, you'll have a real read and then you can exploit the s*** out of him.

      The fact that he did raise smaller probably means he has a better hand than usual, but since that guy has a very distorted view of hand values, it could just mean he has a good Kx or a nut flush draw here.

      I don't think you can fold TPTK to him unless you perceive BB's call on the flop to be strong, which without reads i don't think it is, most likely something like a flush draw.

      Hope it helps.
