Well, I don't hate raising the flop. Its not a good play, but if you do it once every 500 hands to a guy like this, I suppose that's fine. Problem is your raise size is so small your opponent will almost never fold his over cards.
Think about what you're trying to accomplish preflop though. You're calling to set mine because you think your opponent is strong. So bluffing him on the flop and expecting him to fold is the opposite of that plan. If you expect him to have an over pair on this flop when you flop a set, why would you expect him to fold now? I'd prefer the flop be something like Q64, so that we can get him to fold 77-JJ in addition to AK, KJ, AJ.
Once you two-out him on the turn, you need to get the money in. Keep betting, or check/raise, whatever. Just find a way to make a big pot.
The river comes down retarded, so I just bet/fold. Clarkmeister & all that.
