Hi rolo,

V3 certainly does not have a good price to call you, which I'm sure you know the math so you can check this yourself. It doesn't matter, a villain in a .25c buy in game who is playing 55/40 is not a candidate to understand odds and price. He simply has a hand he likes and wants to see a flop, so he calls.

Your preflop 3b is good against this villain. It does leave a bit of an awkward post flop stack, 825 in the pot with 1127 behind... I would probably either c-bet small, like 400 (calling a shove) to entice all the small pairs that didn't hit a set to continue. If called, then shvoe the turn. The all in for more than a pot sized bet may allow him to get away from 33-88. Then again with the limited read you have of this guy being a crazy action player, he may just fall into the "I put you on AK, I call" category anyway. Still, if we c-bet 400 I don't think he's capable of folding a pair for that amount, then the turn we'll be shoving 727 into 1625, another price he can't refuse, so we're more likely to double through hands like 44 this way.
