      Here's typical maniac I've seen playing this before, with total air.
      PREFLOP; His raises can mean pratically anything so with AJs I'm way ahaed to his range. After he only called I knew that there is no monster i his hand.
      FLOP:O ne over card, backdoor flush and gutshot not much of a equity here, but from previous observations I this one was for maniac who has bigger balls. Besides of Kx, Qx JT,AJ, on his range is a lot of bluffs so i decided to raise, and allin

      Preflop: Well if he's raising 100% of hands to 12bb, then AJs would be a clear value bet.

      Flop: I would never fold here vs a 100% range with Ace high + backdoor nut FD + gutshot. Question is whether we should bet/call, c/c or c/r?

      I think just check/calling your entire stack off is fine. This guy's play is on a whole new level of retardation :D He calls your check/push with 5 high :)

      If he is bet/calling the Flop with 5 high then obviously check/push for value is awesome. But assuming he is not that stupid, I think c/c makes more sense, just let the maniac barrel off his entire stack. Pushing just folds out his air (which strangely didn't happen here) and gets called by better hands like pairs
