A bluff gone terribly right... I wasn't bluffing!

I get into a situation where I feel a nicely sized bet on the river may take this pot down.

Full Tilt Poker $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em - 8 players
The Official Hand History Converter

MP2: $49.25
CO: $10.00
BTN: $56.20 - 46/14/2.2 after a 70+ hand sample. My note on him is "maniac."
SB: $13.55
BB: $127.75
Hero (UTG): $65.30
UTG+1: $50.00
MP1: $50.00

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG with As Kd
Hero raises to $1.75, 4 folds, BTN calls $1.75, 2 folds

Flop: ($4.25) 5c 3c 6h (2 players)
Hero bets $2.25, BTN raises to $4.50, Hero calls $2.25 This move is fairly typical from this player. I can put him on any two cards, literally. I have a backdoor + 2 overs, so if he has connected, I have an escape plan.

Turn: ($13.25) 2h (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN bets $4, Hero calls $4 - Unless he's slow playing a monster, his bet sizing is not making sense.

River: ($21.25) Qc (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN bets $5, Hero raises to $25, BTN calls $20 - Here's where I feel like a nicely sized raise will take down the pot. I have played this hand fairly passively with the 2 club draw on the flop. Therefore, I figure that his $5 bet on the end does not make sense and if I raise here and raise strong, I very well may take down the pot. I literally said "SHIT" out loud when he timed down and made the "hero" call. I was *SURE* I was beat and my bluff was called.

Final Pot: $71.25
BTN mucks Ad 8d - Good idea calling Ace high, except you have no kicker, son! WOW! It's been awhile since I've been called SO light on the river.
Hero shows As Kd (Ace King high) - I guess my river bet was not a bluff bet but a raise "for value." LOL!

I think the villain went on tilt immediately following, because this was the TWO HANDS LATER:

UTG+1: $49.25
MP1: $10.00
MP2: $20.00 - Same player
CO: $13.30
BTN: $123.25
Hero (SB): $121.00
BB: $50.00
UTG: $50.00

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is SB with Jd Qs
3 folds, MP2 raises to $1, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.75, 1 fold - Hell yeah... I want to be involved with this maniac in as many hands as I can get involved in...

Flop: ($2.50) Ad 7h Ts (2 players)
Hero checks, MP2 bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50 - I flop an inside straight draw. At this point, I can probably include my Q and J as overcards as well. He's been raising a ton of pots prior, and now I'd bet he's on tilt.

Turn: ($5.50) Kd (2 players)
Hero checks, MP2 checks - GIN!

River: ($5.50) Th (2 players)
Hero bets $118.50 all in, MP2 calls $17.50 all in - Represent the rivered trips, and shove. I have no doubt that he'll call this with any piece of any part of this hand.

Final Pot: $40.50
MP2 mucks 8d 8h - LOL!
Hero shows Jd Qs (a straight, Ace high) - Tons of outs on the flop! I love it. Too bad he got up after this hand.
Hero wins $38.50
(Rake: $2.00)

Hero wins $68.25
(Rake: $3.00)
