      CO: $87.70
      Hero (BTN): $63.85
      SB: $52.90
      BB: $52.55
      UTG: $50.40
      MP: $50.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with J:diamond: Q:diamond:
      1 fold, MP raises to $1.50, 1 fold, Hero calls $1.50, SB calls $1.25, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($6.00) A:diamond: T:diamond: 2:diamond: (4 players)
      SB bets $3, BB folds, MP folds, Hero calls $3

      Turn: ($12.00) 3:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $5, Hero raises to $15, SB calls $10

      River: ($42.00) K:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $15, Hero raises to $44.35 all in, SB folds

      Maniac in SB to my left (still trying to leave the table) I was sure he'd continue betting the turn, and I didn't want to get in a jam preflop or isolate my self against a dominating hand so I just called. On flop I'm pretty sure I'm way ahead and can slowplay but by the river I have to over shove right? I mean I wanted to minraise . but it's only a few $$ diff bet that and the push. Am I just greedy?

      Calling the flop certainly has merit and from there onward i think you played it fine, we're definitely shoving that river for whatever is left in our stack. NH.

      That being said against a maniac on such a flop i think raise/calling is good too, it'll get the money in quicker and induce more costly (semi-)bluffs from him before the board gets too ugly, at the price of sometimes spooking him when he doesn't have anything.

      Hope it helps.
