Calling down vs a Maniac

MrBalzterMrBalzter Red Chipper Posts: 32 ✭✭
I've been putting a lot of effort into selecting tables with very loose players. However my variance has skyrocketed! Many players are stacking off with any pair and any draw so I feel obliged to call down but I feel way outside my comfort zone stacking off "lite" vs these guys.

    If he's really a maniac then just shove on the flop and put it back on him on a board like that. A clubs is a nasty card on the river.

    In hands like this I normally don't like to "blow them out of the pot" My plan vs very aggressive players is to let them barrel.

    I figure their betting/bluffing range is much wider than their calling range.

    Yeah depends on what "maniac" means to you. If they aggress until you do, then yeah
