      you could raise PF and then get it in on the flop.
      Other than that bet pot on flop and turn.
      Try get this shortys chips in as quick as possible when you hit a monster like that.

      Depending on how prone to limp/shoving that shorty is, checking KT and waiting for decent equity to get it in is sometimes more viable then raising preflop, as we aren't all that happy to call it off preflop until we've seen him shove utter crap. Against an unknown limper i still think our default is to raise tho.

      As played i'd pot the flop to start with and then likely play it about the same with 2/3 to 3/4 on the turn. Nice play postflop overall, whatever you do, do not start check/calling on that board, he'll likely call your bets with more hands then he'd bet with himself.

      Hope it helps.
