      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is CO with T :heart: T :diamond:
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.25, MP2 raises to $1.25, Hero calls $1.25, 4 folds

      River: ($21.82) 6 :club: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $10.36, Hero calls $10.36

      Villain is extremely extremely aggressive and I think his range is full of air. I think I should easily have enough equity against his range to call river as he can put me on QQ or Jx that is calling his 2nd barrel because K is an "obvious" card to fire on.

      He is 64/49 on 48 hands with 6.6AF, 95% flop AFQ, 64% turn AFQ and 4/10 river AFQ, However when this hand happened I didn't have as big a sample on him, It was just apparant he was a maniac.

      Hi!

      I really dunno, but if his range is as big as you say he is that means that he can easily have any Jx Kx and 6x which got there on river. So the only thing you are beating with TT are his bluffs.

      The point is that I deduce his riverbet polarises his range even more than the turnbet to very strong Kx or better or Air. I think he normally has air when he fires this river and villain seems so aggressive I doubt he's ever just giving up with his air here.

      If you think he's always barreling his air on three streets, it's an easy calldown. If he's capable of understanding that he should be valuebetting more often than bluffing, you shouldn't necessarily calldown. With the river betsizing being so small you're getting good enough odds to call if he's bluffing 25% of the time, so it's not the worst idea to be a station when he seems to be out-of-line.

      against maniac why not 3-bet ip as strong hand as TT
      not really sure about calldown. he should often barrel turn and you can say he need there Kx or better to valuebet river so I think calldown is not terrible. To me it depends how he bets it or if he thinks I can fold there anything. Generally going showdown against maniacs is never bad thing:)
