      Hi!

      Villain is a maniac with 50/34/16 over 63 hands.

      Just wondering does it even make sense to make a cbet against this kind of opponent with A on flop and later call his reraise and fold to a turn barrel?

      Hi,

      these villains tend to have Ax in these spots quite often, f.e. ATo
      So I'd check behind flop, call on time on turn and most probably fold river.
      OR make contibet to 2,35$ and fold to resistance. It's bad to call on flop when maniacish villain barrels his air anyway.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      against maniac who can often bluff there any random cards I think I also like more checking back flop and then calling both turn and river bets
      As played: I think b/f on the flop is better unless you´re planning to call him down
