      first of all, got my pokerace+pokertracker (thank you :) ) so I'm currently trying to figure what all those things mean and how to play against different type of villains.

      This villains VP$IP was 27% and pfr 24% so pretty maniac. Is this play generally good against that type of players or how would you play it?

      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)

      0.10/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.7 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 3:spade: , 3:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero calls $0.25, MP3 calls $0.25, 3 folds, BB raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.25, MP3 calls $1.25.

      Flop: ($4.60) T:club: , 6:diamond: , 3:club: (3 players)
      BB bets $3, Hero raises to $9.00, MP3 folds, BB calls $6.00.

      Turn: ($22.60) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $13.54, BB raises to $13.54 (All-In).

      River: ($49.68) 3:heart:

      Final Pot: $49.68

      Nice hand !

      I think you played it very well, but personally I would have raised bigger on flop because of the flushdraw (~11), turn is a push off course.

      Hi degnic!

      Have fun with your PokerTracker&PokerAce! :D

      I would have also raised to ~$11 because of the flushdraw and push the turn. I would have played this hand the same against all kind of opponets. You have a strong hand and want to play a big pot. So there isn't really an alternative to the line raise flop, all-in turn.

      Good luck at the tables!
