Ok well what I am trying to figure out is what the best playing would be here. I am already ITM so that is of no concern. I started folding basically all the hands I would normally raise with. This guy was a maniac calling station, reraising station, whatever you want to call it, he played wild.

So I'd fold weak aces, qj, kt, low pocket pairs.

I one case he put me allin and I had 99 and I folded.

Basically I avoided getting a lot of my chips involved in hands unless I had like AA-TT, AK, AQ.

Is my play correct here to try to outwait the autoaway player who has a similar stack (until I doubled up with TT)

Based on the chip stack and opponent I think this is a easy play for second. You have an opponent that can lose three 40/60 all-ins here and still be pretty even in chips with you after that. I'd fold AQ, AK here and call with TT+.
