      3-bet pre-flop imo.

      Bet the turn. You have to protect against flopped sets that can river a full house.

      You dont have to 3bet preflop , you have position on him and he is quite tight also, so I dont see him calling you with worse hands here.

      Dont know about the turn check. It would look quite obvious that you have strong made flush there already. You need some protection but you can give him a free card to disguise your hand a little bit.

      Half pot on river is good.

      12/4 isn't tight enough for you to be afraid to 3bet AK over his isoraise imo, although trying to keep the fish in the pot might have some merit too.

      You can play the turn both ways, you indeed need protection but it's so obvious when you bet there that you have a high heart that you might even get another baby flush to fold, not to mention a set given how tight that guy is. Checking behind and valuebetting the river to get a call from those hands is fine, as long as you can handle a board pairing river correctly (read : don't raise if he donks).

      Hope it helps.
