speech from villain after I fold. Bluffing or had it?

I am in a hand in a 1/3 underground game when the host announces that my taxi has arrived to take me home. 'Yeah, i'll just be a few minutes' I say, having picked up AKo in MP

EP raises to $12, I call, and a tight reg in the CO who hasn't played much in the last few orbits, also calls. I have $280, CO covers.


Flop ($40) K T 4 rainbow. EP leads for $30, I elect to call, because it is a dry board and I am hoping that either villain has a K or a 10, Villain in CO raises to $110. EP folds, I think for a while, and call.

Turn ($270) I check with $160 behind. Villain puts me AI. I act like I have a tricky decision to make for about 20 seconds, and then fold.

As I get up from the table, villain says jovially, 'I knew you weren't playing that hand because you were about to leave.' I am like, whatever.

For the record, he does like to raise with big draws, but the last time he won a big pot off me it was by slowplaying a FH and check raising my flush on the river.

So, does the speech indicate the nuts here? Or as he implied, was he exploiting what he perceived to be my lack of commitment with a bluff?

ask the villian next time this happens if he has a good hand and if he shugs his shoulders then theres a good chance he has a good hand.

Live reads won't help if you make strategically weak plays like calling AKo in MP vs. an EP RFI...

Hard to say but I don’t like going 3 ways to the flop with AKo without the betting lead

Doesn't matter much if he bluffed when you flat AK Pre after an open.

Need to adjust your aggression levels.

I don't think there's any information to be had there.

One thing that struck me was that if you told the guy "I'll be a few minutes" it might be a sign that you have a decent but not super-strong hand. Because I think it's likely if you had QQ+ you'd probably not imply you'd be "a few minutes" and maybe wouldn't even say anything except "one sec." Something I'd be thinking about if I heard you say that. The "few minutes" is kind of implying "I've got something good" which I don't think you'd do if you had QQ+. But very minor clue in scheme of things.

The villain would probably rub it in and show a bluff if he knew you were leaving. His comment after the hand sounds a bit like "goating" which is typical behavior from a strong hand. However, the V could easily have done with with something like KQ thinking it was the nuts because you unrepped your hand so much.
