      I don't like call pre and playing Q9o OOP.
      Rest is fine.

      Call or 3bet him IP with hand that's at least suited and have some equity. Don't go crazy in spots where you know that your play can't be profitable overall.

      This. Don't start playing Q9o even with a 3-bet just because your opponent looks maniacal. One property of maniacs is that they just won't give up, so even if you 3-bet they often won't fold, you'll just get outaggressed later on after dumping more money into him unless you'll willing to bluff off a stack on your own accord, which is usually not a good idea either since he'll find any excuse to call you down.

      Just wait for a hand with good value against his range, like even A9o would do the trick, obviously all decent broadway hands as well, something that can flop a decent pair or a strong draw that you're fine felting for value.


      Hope it helps.
