Long time lurker... Forums and podcasts have been a big help. Hoping I can get some opinions on a preflop spot. I am playing in the middle of the night between Friday night and Saturday. Table next to ours broke and 3 players come to our table. One puts chips down and leaves. The other two sit. One of the incoming players mentions how guy who put chips down has been playing every hand and has wild swings.
: Villains :
UTG: loose passive player who limp calls ~ 50% of hands. Have not seen him raise. $125
MP: "Maniac" player. Have not seen him play a hand yet, only have what hijack said about him. $110
hijack: young player. Made comment about maniac. Had headphones in but is paying attention. $350
Couple hands later I am UTG+1 and have TsTd. Hero has ~$400
UTG limps $2
I raise to $12 with TsTd (standard raise)
MP - who was not paying attention it was his first hand back - raises blind (confirmed by player next to me) to $30. Not sure if he noticed if I raised or not.
hijack thinks for a while and calls. Dont think he noticed if maniac looked at his cards.
UTG calls. Action back to hero.
What do you do? Is folding too tight? Raising too aggresive?
