Pick another day to fight?

I never know which way to go while playing a hand with a crazy guy.

Villain was 29/13/25 over 84 hands.

Part of me says go to the felt with this hand and part of me says to wait for better spots. What do you do?

Full Tilt Poker $0.50/$1 Pot Limit Hold'em - 8 players -
The Official Hand History Converter

BB: $138.90
UTG: $83.25
UTG+1: $47.05
Hero (MP1): $116.15
MP2: $54.70
CO: $110.85
BTN: $125.50
SB: $18.00

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is MP1 with As Ad
UTG calls $1, 1 fold, Hero raises to $4.50, 5 folds, UTG calls $3.50

Flop: ($10.50) 9c 9h 8h (2 players)
UTG bets $10.50, Hero calls $10.50

Turn: ($31.50) 6d (2 players)
UTG bets $31.50, Hero ???

One note.. this was his first and only donk bet that I had recorded on him. Very easily could be a draw.

Have a nice day!!

Go to the felt. This could easily be 1010 or JJ, as well as any 9

Ship it on the turn. SPR of 8 is generally good enough against a maniac.

I'm totally fine with losing my stack here, especially because I'm having a hard time putting him on something that beats me here. I'm guessing he has like 10-10 or J-J. And this is me saying this. :)

While this guy could really have any two cards and playing with an AF of 25 only confirms that, I really didn't feel like risking it and waited for a better spot.

I folded.

Unfortunately, the better spot never came against this guy.

Really REALLY don't like that fold. He's not even 100 bbs deep! He's not going to check/raise you with a 9 or eights full instead of leading full pot? AF means near nothing over 84 hands. It doesn't matter who you're playing against, you just can't fold this hand.

Ship it. Ship it on the flop. If not, ship it on the turn. I mean if you're folding here, you shouldn't even play.
