      Looking back at this I don't think I played this very well. After the call on the flop, would a bet on the turn be a better option, putting him on a flush draw?

      I checked behind on the turn, trying to keep the pot small, thinking that if a blank came on the river I would call a bet from him.

      Well if you think you're ahead on the flop and feel fine playing AK-high for value against that guy then it's fine to valuebet the turn, but you gotta be confident he won't fold draws, otherwise you're pretty much just asking to isolate yourself against one pair hands. Your original plan is fine too, especially if he's usually bluffing busted stuff on the river. He might even hit a K or an A and go broke against your better top pair.

      For that very reason i'm tempted to call the river bet since bad players won't have only flushdraws there. I guess it depends on how fast he jammed that river and what he's like in general, play will probably be marginal either way.

      Hope it helps.
