      I like to bet pot in unraised pot. And then bet pot on the turn. Probably call the river then (by that time he would only have 6-7$ left in a 20$ pot), unless you know he never bluffs in these spots.

      As played yes it is a good situation for a blockbet.

      Totally agree with cindy1985 : he is passive so blockbet is nice here.

      His stack is too small to blockbet river.
      I would bet 4$ on the turn and put him all-in on the river. He would still call with Kx.
      If you believe that he was drawing then c/f is better river, than b/f.
