      Is it ok to shove river? I would usually cbet on this board and bluff e.g with KQ on turn and river.
      I think I am mostly ahead, but can I expect that I get called by 88-JJ? Maybe smaller bet?

      Vs your bet on the flop A high floats often so you should definitely bet river for value. I don't expect QQ type hand to call that often but your opponent just has Ax enough to call. I'd say ATs, AJ, AQ, AK is in his range that calls river, sometimes you get some lower suited aces to call flop, mostly spades for the BD flush.
