      Hello Belgas,

      Flop: I wont overbet here, either pot it but don't overbet you are representing a strong hand.

      As played
      Turn: 2nd barrel is fine to get value from Jx type of hands or maybe even a draw.
      River: Since it's freeplay I'd even sometimes consider folding here against some passive opponent but against 4 AF I'd also Call, but how to know if his hand is strong? Look into your play, you are betting both streets, even overbet flop and he still bets into us on river, he would most weaker hands just check behind and likely bet stronger hands. But as long the bet ain't that big the Calling is fine.

      Best regards.

      You shouldn't bet over pot on the flop. A bet of 3 cents is better here in my opinion.

      Come river it's a fold despite the good pot odds. You need to be ahead 25% of the time for the call to be profitable, but nobody's calling two streets in order to bluff the river at NL2 and every legitimate hand he bets here is better than your top pair bad kicker. He'd check back most top pairs, except maybe AK and KQ, because he'd want to see a cheap showdown. There were no draws that missed for him to bluff except QT.
