      Don't openlimp! Either raise or fold, folding 22 is ok in MP1 imo.

      As played I'd just c/r the flop because I don't expect he's capable of folding an overpair and he's unlikely to fire a 2nd barrel with air.

      If you c/c you have to lead the turn for this exact reason and because he is sometimes even checking back overpairs (but never folding).

      As played the bet on the river is fine, but you should fold to the raise as he is not capable of turning TT+ into a bluff and if he has total air he probably doesn't even think about bluffraising.
      So he always either has 9x or 6x, 9x being way more likely.
