      his stats in 156 hands  vpip35 pfr21 af1,1 wtsd40
      turn BEP21%  river BEP31% 
       if I assume his range like this AQs~AJs、KJs~QJs、AQo、KQo my equity on the turn is 29,8%   
      so,should I just fold on the turn? and river call was worst.

      I don't play NL 50, so I'm not understanding some things.

      Are these raise and 3Bet sizes typical at that level?
      4 bb raise first in from the CO seems high to me.
      I would include 88-JJ at the very least in his range

      Although the flop hits his range fairly well, it hits yours really well too.
      Wouldn't a decent CBet eliminate any hand of his that missed? If you get called, you still have a gutshot and two overs.

      One last question -- are you playing a mid-stack strategy?

      Again you have <100bb stack. Are you playing on Ongame? Reload more often, else you miss out on value.

      Preflop is fine and you plan on going broke.

      Postflop however that range hits him too much to do anything imo and your stack is too shallow. Against 100+ bb stacks you can consider cbetting because they call preflop with weaker hands. I think it's a check behind to try and get to showdown and give up vs the bet.
