      Althought 64 hands are not much, I saw a maniac tendency on villain, and that's why I played this way.

      Maybe it was better to 3bet PF?
      And as played, fold any street?

      PD. He had over 50% Agg Freq. on every street

      Against a maniac I'm definitely 3betting cause they often call with worse hands & they tend totaly overplay their hands post flop. So I'm still 3betting for value. You also don't wanna create a family pot here. If I have the button here I'm calling with so much suited crap & connectors etc, giving the blinds a free pass to join in for the fun right after. So unless the BU and the blinds are kind of nitty I would never flat here.

      I agree with Mstlc. There are too many players still to act. and QQ still can see too many not so great flops.

      Anyway, I would raise him on flop. Your raise might be called by many worst hands. I don't mind to go broke on this flop against maniac also.

      if you decide to slowplay pf, I´d prefer raising flop and going with your hand
      he´d just shove there too many worse hands that you all beat
      When ace comes then he is betting any ace for value, so not really sure that you can call down profitable, so if you took passive approach pf and flop I like folding on the turn or calling turn, folding river
