      even if I put his range on JJ+ AK,my equity is 44.21 %
      so should I raise something like $8 on the flop and try to go broke?

      When you call you actually represent more showdown value than when you raise plus he can barrel a few worse draws. I prefer calling flop like you did, it still easy enough to realize equity IP.

      This might be a bit fancy play what I'm saying but I would call turn as well to bluff rivers when he checks. I think when he checks we win 99% of the time and we still have outs for flush and overcards. Furthermore, I believe he is more likely to check river or likely to have a weak hand because of his sizings. He does not bet enough to put pressure on you on a drawy board and deeper stacks. It looks like a 'please don't raise me' type bet which is usually a weak hand that can be made to fold often.
