      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?

      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!
