      Hi villain who 3-bet me was very agressive in 55 hands 3-bet 22%. But villain who 4-bet was 29/15/2.3 in 66 hands. His 3-bet was 0. How play against these thin raises ?? I wrote on chat that have AA and 5-bet to 2,5 :D . So he let me see all streets :P

      Then continue to fire until they all fold if they believe the AA thing : D

      Seriously tho, i could see myself playing that hand so many different ways i'm not sure what would be my default. Depends on:

      - what BU will do if i flat the 4bet? If i think there is a decent chance that he'll 5bet with a wide range because of all the action i'd gladly give him a chance to trap more money in there, and even if he overcalls it's not horrible to see a flop with AK and position against SB.

      - has SB been adapting to the maniac BU somehow or not? The more i feel he's willing to get involved with BU the lighter i'll go broke preflop, if i think he's tight and hasn't been doing anything for 70 hands, then suddenly just coldmin4bet i might even just consider folding if i think BU will come over the top again anyway.

      From 5-betting to $3 and calling a shove, to just flatting to play postflop, or even flatting in the hope that everybody goes all-in with garbage and we're in decent shape with AK, i don't think you can really go wrong consider how insane/bad BU looks to be.

      Hope it helps.
