      A: a reason to fold with 2nd pair average kicker...

      Unless youve seen SB maniac shove in the past this is a muck. Might have been a mis-slowplayed set from OOP and annoyed you didnt second-barrel, might have been A2, might have been 55, might have been anything that improved to 2p on that 5 but didnt improve on the K (35 45 Q5).

      So unless youve seen SB shove triple the pot on the river before its best to let this one go. Maniac-shoves are so very rarely bluffs, and the players that make them are normally fairly easy to pick out.

      Fold on the river. Even if you have seen him do this before with nothing, doesnt mean he has nothing this time.

      Turn is ideal for second barrel. If called, you are done with your hand.

      As played, river is clear fold.

      I think checking behind the turn to keep the pot small is OK here on NL10 but you can also just bet it (I don't think neither is wrong but I would bet it myself).

      On the river, you're tempted to make a hero-call but in my experience this is mostly some kind of slowplayed monster that tries desperately for value on the river :) so just fold
