      Table is full of maniacs on my left, I'm about to leave but..

      BB: $95.45
      Hero (UTG): $52.75
      CO: $50.00
      BTN: $58.40
      SB: $60.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG with 3:spade: 3:club:
      Hero calls $0.50, 1 fold, BTN raises to $1.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $1

      Never usually limp/call pf but I was sure the BU would call raise or something.

      Flop: ($3.75) 5:heart: 2:heart: 4:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3, Hero raises to $9, BTN calls $6

      Turn: ($21.75) J:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($21.75) Q:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $7

      I play b/f here.

      If the button is a maniac you may want to c/c instead of b/f, maybe?

      I can see him firing here with a lot of AK, AT, KT type hands and some missed FDs.

      If he has anything better than you, I doubt he will go away after your limp/call followed by check-raise line, because it looks rather strange.

      Also if you think he is a maniac, you may be re-raised often and forced to fold.

      Basically I think pretty much all better hands will call $7 here, bet a lot more if you want to bluff. And obviously I think all worse hands will either fold or if he is maniacal maybe reraise.
