      The hero is against same maniac who is a calling station on early streets and an aggressive on turn and river. The turn bet was ok, since I hit my two pairs from a free BB, and by all means, I expected villain to call me on turn. The river was ugly, but this time I decided to take a stab and represent a hand. He bounced back to me with a raise. I didn't beat much, but I am still left wondering what can villain represent with a play like his... Safe play, next hand, till I get him, right?
      Also, was the river bet ok, or check/fold versus this type of players?
