I do mean reraising the flop, much in the same way as one would 4 bet AA/KK preflop. In this case because it's the flop it would be a 3 bet instead, but similar principle.
I think when it gets raised and comes back to you, you've got to tell them, hey, I wasn't just making a move at the pot with top pair, I've seriously got a hand and it's going to cost you to chase your draw.
If a straight/flush card comes on the turn, I dunno. If you've bet proper amounts you've given him 2 chances to not call against pot odds
and you have to decide whether he's a chaser and has hit, or whether he has two pair and you're still ahead, or a bigger set and you're beat. OOP it's tough; that As is a bad card as it completes a flush as well as a straight for KQ and he could have been drawing to either, or maybe both. If he had KQs he's not folding on the flop anyways but then he could have played it stronger rather than calling.
You're either WA or WB which usually means checking, but after a big show of strength that might induce a bluff from someone behind.
