      Flop cbet is way too small. Otherwise nh. A set would most probably raise the flop so I think the turn shove is pretty standard.

      His line is pretty weird... he could have KhJh or sometimes you see guys "slowplay" KK/AA or even a flopped set horribly like that, but in any case you have to go with your hand.

      I'd raise preflop to at least 2$.
      As played CB flop at least 3.5$. Calling turn makes no sense as it in effect would give villain a free card, fold seems a bit weak on this board, shove therefore looks like the best option here.

      Flop: I would make the CBet a bit bigger to protect my hand, ~$3.50.
      Turn: As earlier mentioned that calling doesn't really make sense because we only give him a free card with that, we have to decided whether we push or just fold. In this situation our hand is kinda strong to just fold, therefore I decided to push. As you see his hand you can note him down with what he is doing such minraises preflop.

      Best regards,
