      57 hands, 77/39. bet 24. aggro fish.
      Last our hand, he open raised 1$ from sb ja shoved he folded, had 8$ stack.

      Is raise for value ok? I am not sure on river If I should bet larger? He would probably call even shove with 88, but I was afraid that he has 4x, 2x.

      I will answer the last thing first because it's so much easier to do in this case: he bets 4x and 2x himself for value so he never has that. I think river is a shove for value for you because he either has:

      a) Jx, TT-55;
      b) busted flushdraw.

      If you shove you always get a call from Jx. Flushdraw folds regardless of what you bet. I think you lose way too much vs Jx to bet smaller and get 55-TT call which might not always fold against a shove anyway. :)
