      Raise them pre-flop!

      After the flop I guess it's ok, but I would have put him all-in on the river directly.

      raise to 1.10-1.20 preflop

      as played I checkraise flop/bet turn
      this way you have maximum value from flushdraws or Kx hands
      but if he hardly ever cbets your line is fine too but push river instead of betting small and calling
      you lose value from Kx who might just call your small riverbet

      I´d also isolate all-in player with my aces.
      Better win small pot than loose big one.
      Postflop is fine: but shove river you have less than potsize left.
