First 11 hands against a maniac in a $57,5 (NLTRN)
      #10579869 - 05/30/07 12:09 PM

Some of the hands are standard, but there are alot of hands where I don't know where I'm at, and what I should do. I hope you can help me out here. The hands in red are the most interesting I think.

Don't limp hands like T3 or 32 against this guy. I also don't call the QJ hand, you're out of position facing a 10x raise.

Major read, this guy overraises and overbets way too often. Beat this guy like you did in the K7 hand, pick up something solid and let him bet 10 times the pot with 7 high. Also as the blinds go up and this guy keeps raising to 250-300 preflop, shove somewhat lighter (you're trying to steal the raise here, but don't be surprised if you get called by a K4 or JTs).

The K9s hand is close against this player. I would try raising pre-flop and see how my opponent reacts (I expect some kind of disgusting shove or something). As played I think you can get away with playing this in position, you may even be ahead of his range.

I dont completely agree not to limp stuff like T3o. As long as its cheap to do it, I like to keep him thinking Im just putting up with it. If you start to tighten up too much, and you finally pick up a hand and repop him he may be able to get away from it.

If I just keep limping and he keeps raising, and at some point I do the same, he raises... I think for a while and reraise him he doesnt have a clear enough picture. He will more likely call, thinking we are finally fed up and now playing back with inferior holdings.

Ofcourse its generally right to really wait for a good hand vs. these kind of people, but its important to realize they are not stupid either. You therefore have to disguise your plan long enough to make it work.

The QJ hand I dont call either. In fact I think its pretty bad and the completely wrong hand to call in this situation.

I would keep limping trash hands and wait for a PP to limp reraise him with.

Don't limp hands like K7s though. He's going to repop a limp more often than 3-bet your raise probably, so you want to raise a hand like K7s that will get a call from more hands. If you limp it you have no idea what he's raising you with because he has a fairly wide raising range and the way he plays postflop it's just going to hurt you without a very strong draw or pair +.

Play patient against these maniacs but don't shutdown, you're going to have to limp-fold and raise-fold more often than you are used to preflop. As the match goes on you'll likely get a better feel for his range and you will probably like playing this player.

Really? QJo is a top 15% hand or something. Should I only call top <10% against such a player?

Yeah I agree. I should have paid more attention to the 2nd hand, where I was agressive and he folded.

yes, but by that time we have only played 5 hands vs. villain and dont know much about his postflop tendencies. Once you call that huge overbet pf you must be willing to put your stack in on a 26Jr board. I wouldnt feel comfortable doing that vs. a player that can easily be exploited in other ways.

I know QJ itself is a good hand, but for its dynamics vs. an overly aggressive opponents its no good imo.

but then again, I play the 11s, dont take my word for what I say.

I would comfortably go allin with top pair medium kicker against this opponent. Sometimes I might shove with some good draw or combo draw because he will fold often (his overbets are trash quite frequently). I wouldn't get fancy with T3o limps etc because your limps going to get raised too often. That K7 hand is a good one but I'd shove it on the flop or on the turn. You're ahead large majority of time and you won't have to make ugly decisions on the river. That Qc on the river is one of the worst cards and you would have been in trouble if he shoved.

With tyhe K9s hand make a normal raise to about 80 and play the hand, the only aggression this player has shown has been in the form of your pf passivity, but the one hand you raised he simply called and folded to your flop bet. If you were to raise, the only hands I see him repopping you with are hands that have K9s beat or dominated and you can therefore get away from the hand cheaply.
