      I think preflop I can profitably call here even with call20 rule. Cause opponent was fairly aggressive I figured I scare him off with c/r, on turn I figured the A is a scare card and I can take a stab. Now the river play by me is weird, think I should have bet myself or... dunno, opponent's play screams about flush... or does it? Actually getting almost 5:1 on river I can't fold it.

      set mining isnt always profitable in blind battles, because he can defend his blinds with trash hands which wont pay you off when you hit a set.
      checkraising flop and leading turn is a bit overplaying your hand, when he calls your c/raise he isnt folding the turn so it is a really bad spot for a semi-bluff. Check/call both streets according to odds and outs - remembering that hitting a straight is going to be quite obvious so you dont have many implied odds.

      bad thing about c/r is once you c/r you have to go with your hand
      So I think good option is lead out or then c/c and decide what you want to do on the turn wither c/c once again, leading out or c/f
      since you´re pot committed once he shoves turn then I think you should shove yourself to gain maximum fold equity.
      River: I´d shove, since you can´t c/f, and he doesn´t always have you beat and would call with worse hands
