Waiting for the maniacs push.....

By: pirateglenn @ 09:40 (EDT) / 315 / Comment ( 0 )


Good afternoon PSoers...

We are all faced with a similar problem/challenge from time to time, that of the idiot all in maniac.

Today was no exception - after bedding into this afternoons PSO, i found myself chipped up to a 3k standard (enough to sit out and make min points, but not my style) and I had 22 in late position, 2 callers in early pos, so i called the bb (80) to see a flop.

Flop comes a rainbow board of Jd, 2cl, Ksp.......Several fold their 80 bet and its comes round to me and i make a deliberate over bet of 540 which is instantly reraised to 1700 and followed by an all in of 2700...


So I am faced with a sick decision as Im supremely confident im ahead and factor in someone is drawing and someone is playing top pair...I use my tank and I weigh up playing my tourney life..

I call...


late pos (me) 2 2 2

early pos Qh10h

early+1  KclQd

so im spot on with assessment of hand and ahead...turn comes a nothing 3d and river comes a 9sp....

The maniac kills the pirate on the river, this was the same player who had pushed every hand and was blindsrealing and showing garbage like 2 5 off and 7 10 off....etc etc

Having waited to play a hand which was profitable to see a flop and then flop a monster....the ideal of waiting for the maniac to push does not always factor in a second caller, im happy with the play though and given the situation, i would steal play that out the same way...

Heres to the 6pm showing....
