Against this player, yes you're overplaying TPGK. His range doesn't include stuff like suited aces, he's a 9/5 over a non-terrible sample. Check/call the turn, check/fold the river. His stats are crazy tight, and the overpairs might still be in his range.
I'd bet flop, bet turn and check/fold river. This player is a complete nit and will probably have AJ+ if he calls 2 streets then bets the river.

This guy is so tight he squeaks although it is only 25 hands. His numbers don't look like a guy who floats. so you have to figure he has something. How many of those will you beat? With an under 10 VPIP I'd say not many, although as it turns out he had one
I would have C-Bet, checked and tried and get to show down.

Your bet sizing is too small. Go for 2/3 pot for a standard cbet. Bet 5bb when the pot is 7.5bb instead of betting 3.5

re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: Am I overplaying top pair good kicker?
Given your very small bet sizing I think you did not overplay. I sometimes call any made hand, because villains usually betting this small go in my book to fish department, they mostly have underpaid to the board and many times only AK with occasional TPBK. I do think however that you would make more money in long run by betting standard size and not 3 barreling.

betting flop on a dry board isnt good .. we want action from worst hands... our aim should be getting river cheap as and going min value against his medium pp
