      not hard to beat maniac...

      If you think he will raise, limp in or check to him.

      Vpip 46 pfr 14 means he is calling a lot. Raise to 4bb + 1 preflop

      With a high WTSD (33 is high looks like he will call down with top pair or second pair) you must bet all three streets for value. Bet whatever you think he will call.

      There will be variance. Make sure you are properly bankrolled (NL25 you should have about $750)

      Lastly, compliment the maniac when he wins. ("When I play the 74 suited I always lose with it", "jeez you can win with anything"). Be prepared to accept variance. I am assuming you lost 2 or more buyins to a maniac (else you would not be posting this). Take a break when you are tilty and then get back to the tables and go fishing. Take his name down and chase him.

      Good luck

      am learning to play against them too. just try to be tighter on those table, and bet bet bet. they do like reraising sometimes with bluff sometimes with strong wierd hands. so ye, like dude said before, get ready to get some variance...
