      I think you can´t really do anything else than bet/bet/shove pf.
      His most likely hand is AQ that he may call you down but might not bet himself if you check to him. He would very likely bet his better hands himself and AK is imo too strong to c/f turn or river.
      Since board is quite dry I´d bet smaller turn to 0.6$ that would leave nice 1/2 pot shove on the river.

      Good luck at the tables,
