      Hey guys!

      vill: 39/17/2/8 after 147 hands

      I have one note on him. The note is this hand.

      UTG: $1.52 (15.2 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $38.49 (384.9 bb)
      CO: $10.72 (107.2 bb)
      MP: $10.15 (101.5 bb)
      BB: $8.47 (84.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 6 6
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.40, CO folds, Hero calls $0.40, SB calls $0.35, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.30) 3 J 6 (3 players)
      SB checks, MP checks, Hero bets $0.70, SB raises to $2.50, MP folds, Hero calls $1.80

      Turn: ($6.30) 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.60, SB calls $1.60

      River: ($9.50) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $6.77, Hero calls $5.50 and is all-in

      $20.50 pot ($1.00 rake)
      Final Board: 3 J 6 8 Q
      Hero showed 6 6 and won $19.50 ($9.50 net)
      SB showed 2 T and won $0.00 (-$10 net)

      Now after knowing this cbetting isn't really a great option. But since he's so crazy I don't want to check and let him bet huge ott either.

      ott I'm lost and river I can't really call this. Any A/K/2 has me beat, but then I nearly levelled myself because of the note. :(

      Oh what confusion!

      I actually think you played this fine.

      Betting the flop here is good to me, since no matter how crazy he is, people usually give us a lot of credit when we bet on those AKx boards, so I don't think he'd call with something like 89s or so. Also we have to note that, he didn't check/call with air on this previous hand, but he check/raised and check/called when hit the FD.
      So I'd be pretty happy to just take down the pot right here and against this guy there's no need of making this 6bb - you could go for 4.5-5bb and it will be perfectly fine.

      Once he calls you, and you go check/check on the turn (which is good to me), you can never call the river here. He might end up bluff shoving his K6 or so and you are still loosing, so folding is by far the best play here.
