Hi, the villain is playing 43/14 and AF below 1 over just 14 hands.
Did I lost value on teh river ? I didn't be in fear of being check raised, but looking at the hand now even though I don't have too many hands on the villain, if he raises me he have at least two pair. But could I ever fold to a raise on the river with his stack so short ??

I think you're generally only going to get two streets of value with this hand on this board. I'd often check the turn for pot control and to make it more likely villain calls with a weak hand on the river. Villain would need to be a bit more stationy (like 35/5, AF of 1, WTSD of 30+) for me to go bet-bet-bet.
If you did decide to bet the river, I wouldn't be too worried about getting check-raised. For one thing, river check-raises are incredibly rare, and for another, there are very few hands that could check-raise for value (alowplayed 77/22, KQ, or a lucky suckout by 55) and villain's stack is so short that you'd have to call for pot odds.
