dealing with maniacs

By: Jerdyn @ 15:12 (EDT) / 193 / Comment ( 0 )
II'm getting frustrated dealing with maniacs. Today in the first poker school tournament there was a player who was constantly going all in within the first 10 minutes of the tournament. So, I kept folding to keep from going out early. I made the mistake of asking him to take it easy and from then on he was out to "get me".Every time I raised he would go all in if he was in position. After folding a few times he started calling me names. I finally got a decent hand to call his all in, pocket queens. He had 4,6 diamonds. The flop was three diamonds, I had none and i was out early with big negative points. How do you deal with someone like that? I wanted to change tables. By the way, at the time I was 40th in the rankings and he was 8350.
