How does he get to the turn on a flush draw? You also have the which takes a lot of possible hands that would call a flop bet and make a flush draw on the turn out of his range. He can't have , , , , . He can have , or , but not many other likely flush draws here really. Honestly I think you have a fairly yucky fold to the turn check/raise. At this point you'r'e making a decision for the rest of your stack...with 25 BBs you still have some playability left. I just don't think he has enough bluffs in his range. And it's really hard for him to have AK since you have two aces.

I think a better play on the turn would be to check behind and then call a river bet or make a value bet yourself if he checks the river. And I still think you have to fold to a check/raise, and preserve your stack.
