      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: OK.
      Turn: OK, looks like a fishy player. I don't think that we should be scared be beaten here.
      River: I'd play here Check/Call.

      I bet some weird amount on the river like $17, leaving $8 back, cause it makes no sense and some people see this as a cheap attempt to bluff.
      You might get calls from A's. If you just check, I think he checks behind many hands, except for a J of course. Once you call him on the turn, I don't think he'll try to bluff you again.

      If you have a read that he likes to bluff shove river, then sure, go for a c/c. But I think you often get checks behind when you try a c/c

      I am reraising the turn, there are some draws and you won't get money from them on the river. alternative: call turn - c/c river.

      Best regards,
