His hand looks like either 66, 44, A6, or an agressively played A9-AT. I think you are beat more often than not, so I like the call down.

I might just call the flop raise though, so that I can pop him on the turn.

If BB would have folded already I would have called the flop raise and raised the turn.
You fold if MP then 3bets the turn?

Nope. He is agressive, could have a worse A, or could be semibluffing the flush. We also have outs when behind.

I like your line for the most part, but you have to hope he is overplaying his hand, which a player like this will often do. Keep in mind even a maniac/moron can land a big hand every once in a while, even though its very difficult to give him credit for it.

I don't like this since he's just c/r a two other players. I go into call down at this point. Too weak?

Yes. A check raise here does not always mean we are beat at all. It could be a flush draw, or a worse pair. If you don't feel comfortable raising the turn, at least 3-bet the flop.

Don't look for folds with TPGK ever. Its a leak. See the showdown, the payoffs virtually the same.

That's my line. I pray to see A9 or AT, or maybe AJ, but I expect to lose. However, I expect to be good enough times to call down. Can't be folding TPGK regularly just because a guy seems overly frisky.

Sometimes, players will go bonkers on us with top pair in frustration over previous hands.
