      Hard to say without playing with the guy, all maniacs have different tendencies. Assuming you've seen him donk out big often i don't see any problem with your line on flop/turn.

      The river is a little bit dicey when you think about it, maniacs are more likely to continue to fire with their bluffs than with their made hands. So trying to induce another bluff raise when he pot-pot-checks looks kinda thin unless you think he takes another line with a J on earlier streets. No big deal, but you can't minbet/fold that spot, it's a pure inducing line. If you don't want to call a raise, just don't bet the river.

      Hope it helps.
