How do you guys/gals handle the Maniac player who plays almost every hand?

I was in the daily double on FTP. On my table from the start was a manic/maniac who played 90% of the hands he was delt and pretty aggressively. I know from experience that playing extra tight against them is usually the way to go. But last night i couldnt push him out of the pot (even going all in) with hands like QQ, KK, AA, AKsuited etc. Even though i was able to take a good chunk of his change a couple of times, he took more of mine in 3 out of 5 hands, with his K3unsuited, QJsuited, and a 35suited.

Watching his stack fluctuate pretty good I know he will not win, but what else can a guy do or should a guy do when even your premium hands fall to this type of player?

When we get at the table that kind of player we have 2 option: 1. go aggressively like hi does ; 2. sit out and wait for him to fold out.

I do not know what to do against him when he beats any hand in my better hand at river and all tactics fail. Then it comes women's intuition and all in.

Just wait for you premiums and play them aggressive.
If he cracks your premiums it's just bad luck, but in the long torm this must be an winning play against the maniacs.

Play your style. Eventually he will lose and in most cases be out of the tourny before you are.
