      I think there are arguments either way. If you know that he's really overly Aggressive I call although the fact he checked initially may mean he really was trapping you with Ax.

      The fact that you say he's a maniac and there are two A's down making it a bit less likely he has one makes me call he also donked flop which I rarely give respect to, again we only need like 27% equity or something to break-even.

      I 3bet bigger pre to $3.5 at least

      Flop is ok but I check behind the river despite the 2nd A, since he is maniac he can bluffraise you but you also want to play a relatively small pot since he can show up with random aces.

      I think you can get more value by checking behind and call the River,

      As played, I'd call his c/RAI but I doubt whether he can show up with QQ-77 here enough times to be profitable

      if you´re going to bet turn, you have to call shove, since draws has a lot more than trip aces
      But I would check back turn and call river bet or if he checks then bet river myself
