      The preflop minraise is rather odd, but I'd put him on a low pocket pair if I had to or MAYBE KQs or KJs. I also think u should've bet the turn stronger, specially if he was drawing. If he had the A or even a set he'd prolly reraise u considerably right away. As played I would bet river some half pot, hoping he might have caught a smaller pair somewhere.

      I'd raise/fold on the turn, his bet looks like a blocking bet. As played I'd valuebet on the river, like Atoks said he was probably chasing a flushdraw and may pay you with something Tx or a pocket pair.

      I agree with Tosh. Turn looks like a blokbet, so raise/fold. As played, river is a blank, so bet/fold for value.

      Why to raise turn.
      he either has A or not, if you raise than all the worse hands would fold and better hands would call.
      As played I would make small riverbet to get called by any pair.
