      You shouldn't bet smaller to play with him! Bet bigger so he pays you more when he wants to play. I would bet $0,18 here (or even $0,20) and be happy if everyone folds because even if two players call you, you're in very bad position because there is a big possibility at least one overcard to your pair will come on the flop.

      As played... I usually do the same against this kind of fishes - shove it as soon as possible.

      Unfortunately he probably hit his KQ or AT but at least you know you played it correctly against him.

      But if you reraise him smaller with monsters and reraise him normal with potentialy good hands you're giving him a chance that he suckouts on you. This kind of players call with KT and go broke on K high flop, don't give him a chance to hit his K.

      If you think you have and edge on him you should play a bit looser against him (if you have a position on him) so he pays you out when you get a monster.

      You can make it a littlebit larger pf to 0.16-0.18, but i think your main goal is still playing pots against that bad player and if you make it too large he would fold very large amount of his weak holdings.
      Bet/shove flop is fine. he has there enough draw/air or even top pair hands that would call you down because of your history, so getting all-in can´t be bad against that player
