Is the question what to do after the river paired?
If my math is right villain has ~$200 which you are calling if you check and villain ships it. The only hands that should worry you is QJ and 55. Villain has more hands in his range which may pay you off such as lower flush, top pair, maybe tripped j, maybe q5, etc. As hand played bet the river for value and insta call with a frown if reraised. IMO
