      After call on the flop I'd just play c/f from that point on. I would check behind on the turn and hope for a :spade: , J or an A on the river and fold river to a bet if not improved.

      I think your FE is really too low to push the turn.

      You play against a Calling Station, only push for max. value (top pair+) so this one is an easy check/fold on the Turn and pray for a or T

      A 2/3 conti-bet = 44% of stack, I would push the flop.
      Pot odds are 2.66:1
      With 11 outs your hand odds to improve are 1.5:1
      Vs calling station you are ahead vs weak aces, str8 draws and small pockets. Vs FD you have the A for a re-suck on the river.
      I mean really, why would villian limp JJ+, AQ+ then only flat call a shortstack raise? Even if we discounted your ace outs you still have 2:1 hand odds. Sample size is small but this villian is calling with a huge range and you often hold the best hand by the river.
      Happy chum hunting
