      I am just wondering how to correctly play a hand like this against a fishy maniac like this. He was like literally minbeting every connected cards, and raising monsters to like 8-10bb preflop.

      In this situation (OPP and maniac) you should be ready to call atleast one potsize bet (high WTS) if you decide to.. I think you can just fold after raise, you can find better spots where to make 100+ bb pots vs maniacs.

      But after check on turn I would make call, because his turn check and river bet makes no sense.

      if you b/c then you´r hoping he has there draw or bluff
      But he can easily raise flop for value with Ax or having two pair+ hand
      So I think b/f is better since likely you´re not going to c/c turn if he decides to bet again and you´re not ahead that often
