      I dont really like your call preflop with this hand OOP, either a 3bet or a fold would be better imo. Flop r/broke is okay, your raise could be a bit bigger (~6$). On the river I dont think he ever shoves AK, AQ, so after his push I dont see any hands we beat, to me its definitely a bet/fold on the river 160bb deep.

      ch/r flop to 6-6.50 even 7.
      bet 3/4 turn(since you are deep and he is still calling his draws because he has implied to do this).
      bet/fold 2/3 river unless you got full house.We are never beating anything he raises there and he is calling T9,89 and raising only AT+.

      I think pf it is either call or 3-bet and since you´re deep I´d likely try to keep pot small.
      Postflop: I like how you played it. Problem is when he is going to shve river- likely you can fold then since I don´t see him taking that line with bluffs or worse value hands
