      Your cbet is probably too small given this board.. double suited and J8x sort of smacks your opponent's range and he will always have equity. Bet bigger for value, AA is still ahead but he calls way more often.

      Vs that raise it's really tricky... You can make a case for every play, including call to see a blank turn. If he is completely unknown I favour shoving since the sizings looks like him commiting himself with a draw thus you have better equity when you get it in.
