I've seen SB capping streets with middlepair before. I thought he was with a weaker ace. When i made my two pair i was pretty sure to be good here, as i will beat A6,A4,A10. But did i overplay here, even vs a maniac ?

nh.

Against a genuine maniac, I play it the same.

Against a possible maniac, I call down from the turn.

In both cases, I cap the river.

I normally wouldn't have capped the flop, and raised the turn.

But that depends on how much a maniac villian is.

I would call his turn bet. Otherwise, I play it the same.

Nope. I'm losing just as much (assuming you lost), especially with the clubs draw out there.
