      If you bet turn, then it should be b/c, rather than b/f, since if he is really good, then he would float you on AcTx, AcJx and shove over your turn barrel.
      Players would mostly play their draws aggressively and would raise flop (especially if they have A high flushdraws), so I wouldn´t really worry flush too often. He may have there KQ or slowplayed set, but pot is getting too big to try folding your tptk hand against reasonable aggressive opponent.

      About his range: I think he would call pf likely 55-TT, a lot of broadway hands, especially that are suited, some Axs hands and maybe some suited connectors.

      If you don´t think he would call you down smt like KJ or AQ, you can always check/rai turn to get maximum value his floats and if turn goes c/c, then valuebet safely on the river.
