      Same maniac guy. This time no limp/minraise. I decided just play fitorfold against him. Of course with his minbet he just gives me a reason to chase my draw. Now i have a question about the river. Not only in this situation, but in general. How much do we raise against a minraise if we are willing to go broke here? Overbet, potsize bet or maybe just 3x-4x his raise size? Given his playing style i could have gone here for the 3x-4x of his raise size, because he could still call me or i maybe even could induce a bluff that way.

      raise flop, since he would very often just min-bet fold there and if get called then you still have very strong hand
      I´d bet turn myself and expect to take it down, since I think he is going to c/f now and your T high is likely not the best hand too often
      I think he is either gonna b/f or b/c with one pair hands and likely going to 3-bet with two pair hands. So i like big raise to get more value against hands that he is going to b/c
      If you make it 0.6$ don´t think he is going to 3-bet bluff you
