I think you would be better off raising this up preflop in the small blind, try to end the hand asap being out of position. When you just limp it's hard to tell if he actually has a hand or he just thinks your weak because you completed and didn't raise. As played I think I would probably call the minraise with the intention of showing down the hand cheaply as possible without improvement. If he makes another significant bet on the turn and you still havent improved, in most cases I think you would be better off folding than try and soulread out of position.

Folding your k10 to his raise preflop wouldnt be a bad idea either, k10o oop is hard to play imo.

We now crush his range; villain took the lead last street, so let him take another shot and go for a check-raise. Bet-3-bet is fine too but a little less likely to work I think - he'll occasionally check behind with A9 and stuff.

Yeah, I'd check-raise like ChuckTs said. From what you described he likes being a little tricky, so I guess he could have A/K, but K/Q or K/J is probably more likely.

I'd look to get money in the pot now, and hope that an overcard (or an guess 7 or 9) doesn't hit river to give you a difficult decision.
