      Hello BigAl123456,

      I would likely just bet the turn also to get value from weaker PPs.

      As played
      I don't really expect being ahead in this situation, unless I have reads on him or some notes that he capable of doing such moves with air or weaker hand, I wouldn't really Call there. Usually when people do overbet they usually do have a strong hand, in this situation, trips+.

      Also the hand would be much easier to play if you would have bet the turn also, you would have shown strength and then if he still overbets the river then it would be much easier to fold because he ain't doing there a lot of times such moves with pure air or weaker hand.

      In this situation it could be a bit harder because he might have seen weakness in your play while you checked behind on turn and thought that he might get out out with overbet but also take into consideration that he has such a low AF, so I don't really expect such a move from so passive opponent.

      Best regards.
