      If he is a maniac you shouldn't bluff him. And you played your hand as a pure bluff.

      I'd have called preflop and probably calldown if the board fits. With this flop I might call a CBet but then fold to a 2nd barrel unimproved.

      As played, if you raise him on the flop you should be ready to get it in imo.

      3bet preflop is standard.

      On the flop I would give it up though. I hate such donkbets, I very often raise them like you did, but I don't think you have enough fold equity on that flop. If you still think that he might donk out with air here you should raise him way bigger - like $5.5 - $6. By raising so small you're giving him good odds to draw if he's drawing and he'll call you with almost his whole range.

      Hello,

      I would likely also just fold it on flop, it will be hard for him to donk such flop with a lot worse hands, otherwise if you get into such spots again and different flop and you want to raise then raise it bigger, ~$5.50.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
