Default PS $22 -- Turned Boat, why is this guy calling me?

Should I be attempting to pwn this guy on the river? Are there hands I beat that call a river beat?

A 5, any lower than 88 pair, and overcards would probably play this the same. You are most likely ahead, and many worse hands that he holds here will call you, so you have to valuebet. I'd probably throw out about 150.

I don't see anything unusual here. He has a hand but not a monster and is just trying to get to a showdown. Any pocket pair, maybe 56 suited. I value bet 200 because I think I am probably ahead and want to discourage a move being made if I check.

5, smaller pocket pair than 88, A high might call you down also at these limits.
