i don't like your line against this player since he's probably not that good... as in, he's likely to be passive and not value bet thinly but just go to showdown. I would fastplay this hand on the flop.
Not at all results oriented. You can fold a set in poker. I'm not complaining of a bad beat here. Merely bringing to attention that if you're 3 bet by a certain type of player you can get away from the hand. If the guy has KK here this thread isn't started. 9 combos of AA, KK, QQ and 9 combos of AK. Based on that alone and with the assumption he doesn't play AK like this all the time you can make an arguement for check/fold or bet/fold.
Also if check/fold isn't an option than why don't you like a river lead? Remember this villain doesn't have greasy long blonde hair and hail from Switzerland. He's tight and doesn't 3 bet light.
