JJ-QQ and AK all have you crushed. You really only beat KK here.
But if you're folding this river, why did you call the flop?

on the turn we must raise. I think that we must protect our aces on this board from draw hands.

I feel like you need to take a more aggressive line here somewhere. I'd prefer to raise or fold the flop (raise being kind of a bluff). A good way to improve is to turn more of your calling range into a raise or a fold imo.
Calling the flop, what are you hoping for? I don't see how your hand can really improve that much other than hitting a king. If you're floating to see if he gives up, the turn is the time to bet. Don't really see what your plan was post.
