      As we know c/c flop and c/r turn is widely know as "teh nuts line" and this guy seems like one who may be using it. I would bet a bit bigger on turn and if he raises most likely just fold it although I'm not sure if it's the best idea. I somehow doubt he may be doing it with Qx after K on turn, so either it seems like set or KQ type of hand unless it's his usual line with random hands, for example, if he's capable of calling flop with K high and now raising as he thinks he busted your Qx hand you bet flop - calling down then becomes reasonable, but I doubt that's what you are going to see often enough to justify calling so I tend to fold without reads here.

      Fold the turn or the river? Now that I look at it, I should have folded the river, and I think I would have done it...if I wasn't tilting :/ Dammit, why isn't there a definitive answer to anything in poker :D

      I think b/c turn and then calling also river is fine
      Player should be aggressive enough to c/r turn with worse hands and AK just seem too good hand to fold
      If you think he isn´t going to c/r enough bluffs/draws on the turn then b/f turn is fine
