Villain is unknown, 33/18 with AF of 0.5 so is shaping out ot be quit fishy. I bet two streets for value and check back the river as I can really only put him on 78 in which he folds or a flush in which I have to bet/fold to a check-raise or just lose money to a call. I think a jack is folding the turn most of the time and with that river I cant see a jack calling either.

This is quite interesting. At first sight I actually liked your checkback OTR, but giving it a closer look I guess we can make good arguments for thin valueshoving here.

You have the which blocks a lot of flushes itself, villain checked river (most recreational players bet at least a small amount from up front when they get there), he could have improved to some combos of KJ/AK and if he is very loose maybe even calls with Ax.

Shoving is superthin here so it really would depend on your impression of the villain and his actios.
