1 minute

Last Updated: January 23, 2024


A maniac in poker is a player who plays very loose and aggressively. When playing against a maniac, you can expect a lot of raises and big bets, as they often like to play risky. The complete opposite of a maniac player is a rock, a tight player who always looks to avoid risk.

Maniac Poker Example:

A maniac poker player might reach the flop 40%, 50% of the time, or even more. This means that they’ll be bluffing a lot, so the best way to play against them is to tighten up and look for value.
