      SB: $17.44 (348.8 bb) (29/18/1.3/35/116) [VPIP/PFR/AF/WTSD/Hands]
      BB: $12.57 (251.4 bb)
      MP: $39.33 (786.6 bb)
      CO: $6.20 (124 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $7.55 (151 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.45) 3 2 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25, SB raises to $1.40, BB folds, Hero???

      Hello, I guess my question is simple, am I shipping here or folding? I don't think there is much point calling. Reason I called the donk bet was the guy was a maniac (he had lost $44 in 90 hands) and the board was dry. I'm thinking best play is to fold here.

      if BB was a maniac and sb wasn't a retard then it's a pretty trivial fold. SB shouldn't be bluffing with the maniac in the pot. probably binked a set. I guess it's possible SB also has an overpair but i wouldn't count on it since it would be a rlly bad slowplay prelfop with the BB being as crazy as u said it's EV+ for sb to 3 bet premiums vs your BTN open and hope the maniac coldcalls.

      I'm always folding here, not even close

      I would prefer folding there. I think it makes your hand easier if you raise against maniac and play for stacks with him- at least he would bet/call worse one pair hands than aces

      best regards,
