i knew the opponent, it's 888 snap poker, so i don't have stats for him but have some notes. opp is maniac he could 3bet w 27o...i played a lot w him and saw many sick hands. so when i have my A3s and saw his 3bet i wanted to 4bet his weak range. on this flop i bet 1/2 because he never folds, but if i bet 1/3 he could push and i dont want to bet/fold my gutshot+backdoor FD w ace. what about turn? must i push or bluffcatch would be better. on flop he would call me w any pair or over cards...
You may have been better not showing his cards. Against this player type who apparently never folds Pre you can exploit him by 4 betting much larger with your TT+ and shoving suitable flops when 100bb deep. A3s is normally a bluff and despite him being lose as hell I'd still generally expect to be behind his 4bet calling range.
Personally I wouldn't have put in another cent against a range that includes all pairs it's just far too many combos and they are never folding on the flop. I check flop and hope for a free card and likely fold to any more betting. As played give up on turn and save half a stack. If you/he had any overpair we are never folding with that spr. Betting turn was bad imo.
