Value bet or not?

BN: ElasticSheet: $100
SB: sLivAA: $152.59
BB: Paulv4: $129.59
UTG: KimWanHull: $100
HJ: Ravic77: $150.56
CO: Hero: $139.73
Preflop ($1.50) (6 Players)
Hero was dealt 5 5
KimWanHull folds, Ravic77 raises to $3, Hero calls $3, ElasticSheet folds, sLivAA folds, Paulv4 folds
The pre-flop call is probably standard, though marginal?
I called because Ravic is ridiculous aggressive. Definitely top 3 most aggressive players at these stakes. He 3-bets and barrels a lot. Haven't seen him make plays like turn hands into bluffs with blockers etc.

If I flop a set, he's going to hand over a lot of chips.
Flop ($7.50) K K 6 (2 Players)
Ravic77 bets $5, Hero calls $5
Kind of annoying to call here, because I know he's going to double barrel almost every time. Should I just fold here? Him begin aggressive means he has more bluffs in his range, but our hand can't really stand much pressure.
Turn ($17.50) K K 6 6 (2 Players)
Ravic77 checks, Hero bets $10, Ravic77 calls $10
He checks pretty quickly. Not sure if he would balance out by checking a K here, but I assume a guy like him would rather barrel.
I decidee to bet, and try to get him to fold overs, FDs, some PPs (which I don't really expect him to).

Don't see why I'd bet more than 10. That's what I'd bet with Kx as well.
River ($37.50) K K 6 6 5 (2 Players)
Ravic77 checks

Should I value bet here?
His check-calling range contains a bunch of Ahighs, and medium pocket pairs. There are not many Kx we flat on the CO. Probably KQs (4) and maybe KJs, and occasionally AK.

I decided to check because this guy is crazy, and he might check-raise bluff me.

Is a value bet correct versus an average opponent?
