      He is known for being overly aggressive, seen him 3betting 44, donk bet/3betting flops with overcards... So just called him down. How do you play in this spot? Thanks.

      call pf is standard, since although 55 is ahead of his range you really don´t want to play for stacks pre-flop
      I think flop call is also fine and since there aren´t really too many bad overcards on the turn and river I think calldown is fine, although these maniac players also tend to have hands if they fire 3 barrels on that board
