A few days ago, I was playing the mini sunday stack, in the half stage already in itm., With a stack of 65 BB on a tight table with only two manic nordic players. In a standard hand one of the maniacs gets 65% of the stack of the other, and in the hand immediately after, who had lost, makes an open push of 40 BB of utg, My first instinct was to fold as the table allowed me to raise my stack by means of less variance.But finally I decided call with QQ to crash against his AKoff and lose the flip.
Is it possible to fold in this situation when our instinct indicates it or is it in the long term better to take the flip?

Against a maniac like that i would definitly make this call with QQ. it is unfortunate you ran into AK and lost the flip but i think you have to call with QQ against player that is super aggressive
