Top top vs maniac of the year

Hero has been hearing a very belligerently drunk villain scream and holler at another table for the past 10 minutes so hero yells across the room for villain to table change to hero's table. Villain buys in for the 4th time to 300 as he has been stacked twice at the last table and once at the first hand he played at heros table and tells the table that this is his last hand.OTTH
hero is dealt ATs $250 effective and open limps(exploitatively) and villain2(TAG asian lady) calls as well as main villain sb, bb.
Flop:T95hhx
Checks to maniac who bets 10
Hero and villain 2 call.bb folds
Turn:6h
Checks to maniac who goes all in for 300 and offers hero 50 dollars to call. After a quick back and forth about whether hero would actually get paid or not. Villain takes back the offer.
Call?

Re: Top top vs maniac of the year

Raise flop. A lot. Guy is a tilted belligerent drunk playing his last hand. There is so much value to be had. I'd 2x pot it, at least.

AP, we hate this turn, but kinda have to call anyway given the description.

Re: Top top vs maniac of the year

BBV is a different thread....

You did like 6 different things wrong to lead to the spot you’re in.

Now that you’re here, fold. You have villain a cheap flop when if he’s a maniac he’d have called $30-40. You flopped top-top and check called $10??? Did you stake V and are trying to help him win? Now when he catches up he crams $300 into $35 and know you have the question of how to play the hand? You are clicking buttons here.

Re: Top top vs maniac of the year

Raise pre, raise the flop, fold now unless you just want to gamble.

Seriously, you have AT against a drunk maniac playing his last hand. Why are you limping? Why are you flatting the flop?

Re: Top top vs maniac of the year

Pre-flop seems OK if you you intending to check-raise vs the main villian.
I would raise the flop to 55 and call an AI vs villian.
As played call the turn shove.

Re: Top top vs maniac of the year

he can't go ai for 300 if eff. stack is 250;

I think you should be opening this hand to isolate this guy; he's not folding ATC at this point I think

OTF: look to fast play your TPTK especially multi-way

are you in for $12? and its 230 to call here roughly?

Re: Top top vs maniac of the year

To be clear, he's gotten stacked 3 times in ten minutes, and is almost incoherent?

His range needs to be pretty wide to make this a call given the poor odds. The only reasoning to make the call is if villain is just blasting ATC every hand. If he's really lost $900 in 10 minutes I can get behind a call. He might not even know what his cards are.

Re: Top top vs maniac of the year

He wants to pay you money to call the turn bet? If thats not the most obvious tell he has a flush probably the nut flush I don't know what is? I would have raised pre and raised flop against maniac but as played easy fold on this turn.

Hero folds and TAG lady calls with a 9. Drunk villain mucks face down.

Re: Top top vs maniac of the year

Oh, I missed that it was still three ways. I think it's just an unfortunate fold in that case.
