      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, T.
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.17, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.36) 2, 4, T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.36, CO raises to $1.83(All-In), Hero calls $1.47.

      Turn: ($4.02) 5 (2 players)

      River: ($4.02) Q (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.02.
      Results follow:

      CO shows a pair of tens(T K).
      Hero shows a pair of tens(A T).

      Hero wins with a pair of tens(A T).

      I've seen this villain play a bit and he seems borderline maniac. He does lots of re-steals and bets often, but he does seem to know how to fold when he's beat. I knew he has a wide range from CO, so an overpair definitely wasnt a guarantee.

      It worked out for me, but looking back, I'm not convinced that it was actually the right move to call all-in. What do you think?

      If he's really being aggressive on his own I'd give him a chance to c-bet his air on such a dry board that he's likely to have whiffed completely. Probably check/call down or check/call flop check/jam turn unless he gives up on the turn often, which it doesn't look like he would.

      Sure it's the right move to call all-in once you get to that point. Even against an overpair you still have about 1 outs and from what you know from villain he could shove worse pairs as well as completely spazz out with overcards or something. Once you induced a jam by donking out you're not going anywhere.

      Hope it helps.
