      Both preflop and flop betting look like medium/high pocket pair.
      From my point of view you played it well.

      Don't play chicken with insane dudes. Fold the flop.

      If you want to play the insane guy at his own game then shove PF.

      What is the winning strategy for "chicken" played between two cars driven together at high speed?

      Answer: Throw your steering wheel out of the window when you are sure the other driver can see.

      Hi undercover82!

      Against those guys I like shoving AK preflop. As played I would call the flop and see what happens on the turn. You have 6 outs plus the chance to float him here if he slows down on the turn.

      Good luck at the tables!
