      I'd prefer a bet/fold to strong raise on river as opposed to check/call. By checking to him you'll lose a lot of value from his pocket pairs if he checks behind and you'll face a difficult decision if he shoves into you or makes a big Pot bet.

      I'd go with maybe about $18 on the river and fold to a shove.

      To avoid that decisions bet 6$ on the flop, 11$ on the turn and if he still continues then you can shove river.
      Sometimes he has here flush, but sometimes also some pp which he migth call- but pot is too big to c/f.
      Here you can make 12-15$ bet and fold to shove it is probably the best option, since if you check then he´d mostly check back his middle pp-s and if he bets big you should fold.
