Getting 3-bet pre flop, hitting flop with top pair holding AK. Folding to big turn bet.

Underneath is the hand I played in a 7$ MTT. I had been playing for a couple of hours. I had not been getting OOL and had not been caught bluffing or being very aggro. I think I had seen flops somewhere between 13-18%, hard to pinpoint because I cant remember but thats typically where I┤m at. What i found odd was that I got 3-bet and I thought to myself maybe he has QQ. What I also found odd was the instant bet on flop and turn, it was super quick! And the 60k bet on turn was so massive. I had the Ace of hearts which had the nut flush blocker. I think this hand is my absolute best of my folding range but I feel like its a fine line of hit or miss. What would you have done? I tilted myself out of the tournament quickly after laying this down.

Please use the hand converter, people don't like spending the time to interpret the hand history in this format.

You are losing to AQ, AJ, AA, QQ, JJ and splitting with AK. He would probably slow down on turn with KK. There is a small chance he might be turning a smaller pp or other 3-bet bluffing hand into a big bluff. But I dont think his bluffing frequency here is high enough to justify a call. So fold is fine.

I would also consider 4bet shoving with 40bb stack here.
