      Hello BigAl123456,

      Sad but true, but I don't really expect an opponent to overbet on river with weaker hand than ours, I would likely just give up there, it's only a freeplay pot, so I wouldn't get fancy with my trips. Also we have only 41 hands on him but although it says at least something about the opponent and his AF is way too small, just for future you can take into consideration also the AF if you have more hands.

      Best regards.
