Also - He doesn't really seem like a maniac....his AF is only 1.67. Mine is close to 3...does that make me a super-duper-maniac?
Mine is 2.69, and in some sessions it can be almost 4. But look at his VPIP, and much more importantly I had seen him go all in with air / very marginal hands multiple times, at least 3 on that table. I'll trust the play I see going on right now much more than software stats and so should everyone I think.
Point taken about the flop play though, it is pretty weak with dangerous boards. As it was I called of course and he did have the Q, of course. QJ blocking my JJ. Do you also raise with strong draws though, knowing the other guy is an agressive player and my shove/4-bet you killing your odds
What pissed me off more than anything about this hand was I had the strong
feeling he had the Q, but ignored it because of his previous maniacal play...
