      Posting blinds is just bad. Why pay blinds when you don't need to? If you are playing online, the speed is pretty fast and you can multi-table. Just be patient and wait for your turn.

      I would probably raise 55 given that there are only 5 players left to act behind me.

      As played I think the river is a very clear raise. I think we are good here super often and I do expect to get called by many worse hands.
