      Given that the c-bet with 77 might very well be for value against that guy bet sizing is fine. Turn is obviously a mandatory bet, and i think that since that guy won't ever let go of Jx you could almost shove that river for value since you'll be hard-pressed to bet/fold anything reasonable given the price you'll be setting for yourself on a bet/call.

      If you feel like you can find it in you to bet/fold $1.1 getting 3:1 on a call then do it since he probably won't shove worse hands, but i'd just shove myself. Whatever you do, value bet that river.

      Hope it helps.
