      only 12 hands, but with 75 vpip looks like a loose/maniac/stupid shortstack.

      I think I have an equity edge with my A3o however it doesn't play that good and oponent is probably going to call very often. so I don't know if this is a good spot to blind bash.

      flop comes with second pair + gutshot I guess I can't fold here.

      With (probably) no FE pf and very little on the flop I don't mind just checking PF. This fishy type of villain is also likely to call us with hands that have us dominated (eg.A5o) as opposed to folding them. When you raise PF you also effectively"shorten" the game to one/two rounds of betting. IP versus a fish your post-flop edge over an extra street or two should more than compensate for the slight sacrifice of maximizing your PF equity-edge.
