      Considering that:

      - you have the board completely crushed
      - it's very hard for him to have anything to call you with
      - you can still get his whole stack easily by betting the turn and the river
      - the mindonk line is usually indicative of a player who doesn't have anything and wants a cheap card
      - villain seems maniacal

      this is probably a decent spot to just call his minbet hoping he either starts bluffing when you show weakness or catches something like an A or a club and stacks off bad to your boat.

      If he does the same thing on a blank turn i'd probably take the same line you did on that flop, since by then it's less likely he thinks you're strong, less likely he'll ever improve, and flatting a minbet again will prevent you from getting his stack if he doesn't donk the river when he hits.

      Hope it helps.
