      Not the best river card really, but at this limit I guess you cant bet/f since fish will ch/r his sets as well as flushes/straights. So I like to bet $6-7 to get a call from as many hands as possible. Without reads I dont think we can b/f and ch/b is too weak.

      I think if I bet I really can´t b/f, so fish can really surprise me c/rai with worse hands than my top set and it is quite good card to bluff. If you consider how many worse hands he may c/c flop and turn then there can´t be too many flush combos consider all the other hands so although I don´t like it I´d b/c 8$

      what about b/c on the river 6$(about 1/3 what villain has left) to induce some shoves from worse hands. To show like we are b/f this hand.

      can be reasonable, but likely you just loose value, since players usually doesn´t think that way if they limp utg. They see small bet and call you down, but also they might call us down if we bet bigger.
