      Could 3bet for value. Calling is fine too.

      I think, X/R is better than calling, which is fine too.

      My plan is to c/c smaller bets in hopes to hit a straight.
      In this case my implied odds are great. I have about 20% pot equity and he offers me 28%.
      He`s probably got Jx.

      I check, because I think he`s still capable of barreling.

      being on the SB I would prefer 3-betting rather than just calling. I would take c/c or lead on the flop. c/r would build you just big pot and you have no idea if you should barrel on the turn, also since there are no flushdraw he may easily 3-bet you back with air (since you´re not representing anything besides 88/44 that might easily just c/c flop).

      River I would lead myself 0.65$, since overpairs and top pair hands would check back too often- if you want to induce bluffs then c/r is also fine

      best regards,
