      I don't think implied odds is an issue here. There is so little money left and pot is already so big. I think your play is fine if we think we still can have some fold equity like in this case. I don't see too many other options

      1) calling - don't like it when he bets over pot size
      2) folding - If we think his range is super strong here. but i think given stack to pot ratio and the fact that he's a maniac , i don't think we should fold.
      3) minraising - don't like it too. we are committed anyway and vs a fish, shoving looks stronger than minraising.

      so i like your play the best. nice hand.
