Why are you not just open shoving if you only have 7200 chips at 500bb level?
Your opponent is pretty clearly going maniacal on the bubble trying to exploit tight players trying to make the money. Of course he does this badly by not noticing that you are pot committed, but if you REALLY
do want a fold here (which isn't bad a 750 is a bit + % of your stack), then just shove!
Then, you will not induce a [retarded] "re-steal" from the bully. Alternately, limp or raise smaller and when he re-pops it, YOU get to shove. Idiots like this will make these crazy moves a lot more if THEY get the last action. In other words, since he got to raise
and didn't have to call
, he was happy to put the money in. Not saying he would (or even should, since you didn't give us his stack size) fold here, but if you want to maximize your fold equity you picked a bad line against this type of maniac. Remember: they don't like to call themselves, they like to make YOU call.
