Mandatory $10 minimum button straddle
5 handed game
Villain- 30 something Greek pizza shop owner. Total maniac. Playing about 95% of hands. 90% of those hands he is playing blind until post flop and then about 45% of the time continuing to bet or call blind post flop. Typically would finally look at what his hand was on any turn action and then make his final decision. His standard opens were 5x+. He is into the game for about 6k at this point. Unable to fold, over plays draws, degenerate gambler type.
Hero- tight winning image

Villain in BB raises to $60 blind

Hero looks to his left and sees the button already ready to muck(non angle) and CO does not seem all that interested either.
Villain does his usual "well I guess I gotta look now" speech, checks his hole cards, looks at the board and says all in. $800 to call
Ok so I know the first comments are going to be 3bet pre for value. This is 100% good advice and I almost did. The game flow at this point though was me iso'ing him a lot with small thin value 3bets and he was starting to get agitated and play back with 4bet shoves of $1000. Also, a large % of the time his large opens once called in a spot would end up heads up. I knew that if I flatted he was going to bombs away 100% of flops ect... But with two players left to act this May be superseded. Idk
