      I may go for vbet on turn and fold against shove, because I think there are still hands that may call you. But I think checking back isn't bad overall as he may bluff or bet weakers hand and you can call reasonable river bet.
      If played like this it seems like fold, because I doubt he's bluffing here like this, so has to have a solid hand that beats your top pair.

      Hi,


      Bet the turn if he's a fish, otherwise checking behind is ok.

      On the river if he's a random fish even tho it's an overbet I could see myself calling, some players just have no clue what they're doing and might make that as a bluff or with a worse Ax hands they feel is the nuts. If he's a reg it's a fold plain and simple.


      Hope it helps.
