Maniacs or jackals are those that play almost any 2 cards and bluff alot. Last night I had a sitiuation that it seems very common with these players . I was at a shorthanded NL ring game and he limped in the pot . Everybody folded except me the small blind, I had rockets (Aces) so I raised him and he called. The flop was something like 6,5,3 with 2 clubs. I raised about 2/3 of the pot and he reraised me. I sensed a bluff so I reraised him and he called and now we had a big pot. Now I am thinking he must have me beat with a set or 2 pair so I checked the turn after the 2d came out. He raised like 1/3 of the pot and I knew if I called I would just have to go all in or close to it so I instead folded. I thought about the hand after and I figured he bluffed me out of a nice pot . I figured after I reraise him on the flop and he just called , then he didnt have much or was on a flush draw. If he really had a strong hand then he would ve went all in rather then call because thats how maniacs think . How would you guys had handled it? Is there any expert advise somewhere against these type of players ?
