    Thanks for the great video, @KiLee

    I have a question about preflop adjustments against maniacs:

    The games I play are usually 100 bb cap games. A couple of the maniacs in my game tend to open relatively big (7x,8x) Because a 3! against these open sizings leaves a pretty small spr (usually less than 2), should I make an adjustment different than you are suggesting in this video? Should I maybe not 3 bet quite as wide? Maybe make my 3 bets slightly smaller? It just seems I have little maneuverability post flop if my 3 bets are getting called frequently.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Great question. Yes, we should absolutely adjust in such dynamics. We can 3bet a similar range(or slightly tighter), but should reduce our 3b frequency with the hands that are partially 3bet. So instead of 3betting KQs at 50% frequency, you can reduce it down to 25%, etc. Smaller stacks and larger opens definitely affect our counter strategy.
