Default River fold against maniac?

I continue to have problems against maniacs on the river. Normally, this would be an easy river fold, right? But against a maniac, I'm not so sure. This particular maniac has shown several bluffs to the table.

Button is 75/34/8.2 over 89 hands.

PokerStars 2/4 Hold'em (5 handed) converter

Preflop: Hero is MP with T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises</font>, Button calls, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>.

Flop: (5.50 SB) 9[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets</font>, Button calls.

Turn: (3.75 BB) 5[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Button raises</font>, Hero calls.

River: (7.75 BB) 6[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="#CC3333">Button bets</font>, Hero folds.

Final Pot: 8.75 BB

well a lot of this depends on his betting patterns..

does he take advantage of position ? does he often call pf and flop to setup big street bluffs? would he "slowplay"
Ax like this?

depending on his showdown tendencies i want to just go into check/call mode on the turn.. if he's going to showdown a lot of the time, there's no reason to bet the turn IMO.

bet that flop and call down from there. c/c the turn - it's cheap and you can't expect him to fold after he calls the flop. - the way you played it, i still call the river

He has shown several bluffs over how many hands? If he is bluffing &gt;12% of the time here then you should call.

I'd call. If he's a maniac (by my definiteion) he'd probably reraise Ax preflop.
