Villain is 32/21/20 over 41 hands Af 7 and no reads. I think a lot of his range was busted diamond draw, straight draw and maybe a value bet from AQ. Ok call? I think I would probably have folded if it wasnt for 2 pair on river.

Like birdayy says this all looks pretty "standard".

More importantly though I think your ranging and thought process is pretty good. I would also have folded the river if unimproved.
