      Should I be 3-betting pre-flop?
      I think the flop is about as good as I can hope for without hitting a 9, the re-raise worries me a little but I can't fold an over pair just yet?

      Turn and river are both bad cards for me, but his river bet looks like a bluff. Still I have to fold right?

      For me it usually depends how big of a pain in the ass villain can be postflop. The more aggressive he is in position, the tougher he gets to flatcall in the blinds and confidently check/call out of position postflop. Since he looks kinda tight and he's probably playing rather straightforward, calling should be fine, planning to call a c-bet on the driest boards and mostly folding to turn bets.

      I'd probably lead that flop strong, about $0.65, for a few reasons. First it's not a common c-betting board so he might check behind a lot, yet we might induce calls from weak hands by leading. Second it won't cost us more than check/calling a bet against a range who is likely kinda strong to be betting that board. And Third, i don't want to make it too small to prevent him from just randomly raising with anything, since i don't plan on calling a raise out of position against a range against which i'm either two-outing (overpairs/sets) or even money by the river (flushdraw+overs that will check back the turn).

      As played i don't really like the raise/call nor raise/fold, so usually i just call and reevaluate on the turn.

      As played on the river it would indeed be a good bluffing spot for him, but i just think he has the Kc. Folding is fine.

      Hope it helps.
