      I'd probably bet the turn myself for value, unless I felt there was more value in letting him try to represent the flush, which apparently you did. In which case calling down looks standard, especially after the AQ hand.

      That said villain didn't float with air in the AQ hand, he minraised his bluff. Which means he probably has something this time on the flop, and while it's possible that he would still try to represent the flush with a hand like A7/87/65, it's a lot less likely that he's bluffing than in the AQ hand because it's harder for him to have pure air.

      Apparently it was quite his lucky day.

      Hope it helps.
