      Check/raise the flop and bet strong/reraise until you're all-in, if he checks behind lead the turn planning to bet again on any river and hope for the best.

      As played the river is gross, unless he went totally tricky on the turn with an overpair he's only representing a backdoored flush or half of 33's combos (a lot of players still check behind 33 on the flop). I'd probably never shove over, most likely I'd call while feeling bad about it, tho if he's a known nit it's certainly foldable.

      Hope it helps.

      Yes not betting the turn is a HUGE mistake, and shoving the river against a raise is a even bigger one.

      There are tons of draws on the turn that you must not give a free card to. Bet and bet big on the turn.
