      I think this is fine. Most hands that raised for value on the flop beat you and the semibluffs also beat you now. So, unless he was bluffing or unless he made an awkard raise with KT, you're not beating him. So I like taking a pot control line here.
      When he checks turn behind, he's either afraid or the flush, or he HAS the flush.

      So I think blockbet on the river is ok, as he's coming over the top with the flush only and I think we can still get a bit of value from a weaker K.

      I'd bet a bit smaller on the river, $4 seems good to me.

      depends what is bu 3-bet size I´d likely just go with my ahnd in 100bb.
      Hands that beat me: kk/jj/66/ak/kj/k6/aa
      I think he should 3-bet pf with ak/kk/jj/aa, so that leaves kj/66/k6 that he can raise for value and a whole combos of draws that he´d likely semibluff with, since your opening range there is wide and you can´t handle re-raise a lot of times.
      as played: river bet is fine.
