Your flop check-raise seems mega-strong, and he's not worried. Pretty sure you're drawing to a two-outer, and even if you're ahead, he's going to have at least AcKc, giving him over 15 outs and still 55% equity (meaning that even though you're ahead right now, he's still going to improve more than half the time!!!).

What hand are you representing on the flop that is going to make any better hands fold? What is villain going to think you have? Maybe he does have QQ, but if he did, he is not going to fold here because the only hands that beat a high pocket pair is another pocket pair (either higher or connects with the board to make trips.)
Villain probably thinks you are bluffing with air, and if he does have a better hand than he is going to think you have a pair of 9s probably. Only worse hands are folding to your bet.
