I like the 3-bet to be slightly larger, especially when there is also a limper in the pot.
I often check an overpair on a monotone board, especially if I dont have a flushcard. The idea is to hopefully see a safe turn card and only then start to put money in the pot. Betting is not terrible, but you dont have a 3 street hand, so you need to check somewhere, and I just often prefer to do it on the flop.
With a 1-liner to a flush your hand is pretty much dead, so I agree with checking back.
Unfortunately the opponent bets the river, and I agree with folding. In the micros most players have few bluffs, when they bet on a runout like this, and you lose to all his value.
