      Don´t check on this flop. You want to protect yourself from straight draws, and also extract money from weaker made flushes (if you make yours) and also straights. They are not willing to put money in, when 4th club hits the board. Otherwise, agressive play is good.
      And if you want showdown, you end up allin anyway.

      1) Preflop reraise is not enough (about $0.48 is better)
      2) Check is pointless - you have announced strength and flopped pretty well - bet out! Also, its a weird as hell check that better players will not take as weakness. its just inconsistent with the preflop reraise (assuming he calls preflop reraise make it about $0.90 to go)
      3) Then once the pot is in the region of $3 shove the rest in on the turn

      It's not the pot to play it passively. On the contrary, you should play it aggressively to protect you hand and also get value from your hand (which is often the best hand on the flop against this guy)

      Preflop: 3bet to original bet x 3.5 (+0.5 since you are OOP) = 0.56$. (*) He is going to call you any way so you losing value by raising so small. You want him to be committed to the pot as soon as possible.

      Flop: Lead out this flop. When you check you are risking a check behind by him and you want to get it in as soon a possible with your OP + nutt FD. You also giving him a chance to complete a straight if is drawing to one.
      If you check/raise then raise bigger. same reason as (*)

      As played: shove turn is fine.
