      Anon table.

      MP played 45/41 after 30 hands, 3bet 30, AFq 81 so far.

      Villain is a strange one, first I thought he was some LAG, but based on his stats, his 3bet size and frequencies, he is probably just an aggro (maniac) fish...

      Preflop/flop/turn is standard I guess, but what would you play on the river? I didnt want to go for a chRaise, cause I didnt know if he would bet his air hands or not, but he could definitely checkbehind PPs (88-TT, even overpairs) on this river, so I donked out. But I'm really not sure about it...

      Hi.

      If you think he just has a ton of air here, you should check and let him bluff. I don't really like c/r here cos you may be over-repping, especially when the flush completes and stuff like 68s get there as well. Maybe he might try to barrel River and rep the flush with some sort of 6X or 8X type of hand.

      Donkbetting makes more sense if he has a nutted range here, and we think he usually checks back on the River, but may call a river bet.

      I'm leaning towards the first option. He seems like some complete maniac. And the thing about these guys is that they like to bet trip rivers, even though it should be a bad card to bluff at. But they usually try to rep it anyway.

      Thanks.
