      I know I'm usually not good after barreling to river, but I don't want to fold to a bet, so should I c/c turn or river or c/f?

      Hey!

      I'm fine with your play. He could easily have Jx there. I expect he'd raise 2P or set on the turn because the board got pretty drawy. So the only hand I'd be afraid of is KQ (which might raise flop or turn as well). So I assume we have the best hand here and I'd just ship it.
      It is a 3b pot, and an overpair is usually the nuts in 3b pots =D

      The only change I'd make is 3betting bigger pre because we're OOP. I'd add an extra bb, making it $0,50.

      Cheers
