First hand of MTT should maybe just have folded but once he checks turn and river should i be betting that river for value?

Do you think the villain was going for a CR of check jam on the turn and the river fush scared him?

I'm not overly familiar with 6max games but I think calling preflop is marginal considering that we have no history with the guy which it makes it hard for us to range him correctly but as played I think your line is fine and I am absolutely betting the river for value. We can certainly get looked up by JJ+ and maybe some Ax hand that he got carried away with preflop.
I'd keep the bet sizing fairly small on the river because I don't think we will get villain to call anything more than a half sized pot bet with his JJ+ and Ax hands.

Nice hand, Chris.
