      I doubt he´d b/f on the turn so I think you can call turna dn fold to river bet or fold turn directly

      i don't understand why he bet the turn at all, except if it was the only way for him to win the pot? Shouldn't he expect me to bet again anyway and be committed to any raise?

      I have 40% equity vs. a range of 55+ AKs, AKo, while it would cost me about 29$ to win $77 (taking out rake) or 37%. If you take out some pocket pairs, and give him JJ+, AKs, AKo it's even better for me at almost 43%.

      don´t really expect him to lead out with Ak and lowe pp-s than 99 lead out on the turn again
      I think he is leading out to prevent you checking behind the turn and if you shove you´re likely always behind.
