      First of all I would raise more preflop. Flop and turn are fine, I would bet river for value too as that 6s is really a blank, unless he called 3bet, flop and turn with 67 or 66 which is highly unlikely.

      Hello!

      Raise solid preflop, I would like to see at least 0.14 raise there because you are OOP.

      I would just bet all three streets for value.
      He may call flop and turn with FD/worse Aces/who knows what else and there are still value betting river against worse aces or any random hand he may still have.
      Against unknown/passive players betting river is better than checking and hoping he's able to bluff with missed draws or bet worse Aces, just because you are going to miss to much value.

      Good luck!
