On hand 1 I was concerned he was capable of having Kx suited hearts or K3 or K5. It's possible he has K with weak other kicker , a set is possible but unlikely. I guess I was afraid if I called and turn is a heart I'm stuck unless he checks and I shove semi bluff. Guy was making big pre flop raises with things like K5 and face/x a lot. I think if the board was less drawy I would have repopped him on flop. I struggle a bit with players who re-raise hard on their draws unless I too have some draw outs.
Hand 2 I should have raised bigger pre flop, hand outcome would likely have been same as it was a bit of a cooler.

cbet flop though, as played crai turn.
Hand 1, I think a 3bet pre could have worked I guess I could have repopped all in on his flop 3 re-raise and taken it down but given his maniac betting sometimes it was reasonable to suspect some crap like K5 or K3. I think he read me as having TPGK but also on a flush draw.
Hand 2, played exactly this on turn. I was thrilled with the hand but not the cooler.
SPOILER: Hand 1 I fold. Another laggy player who is friends with villian says he probably bluffed me and assumed I had AQ. It just didnt seem worth the risk deep to get it all in with TPTK and no flush or st8 outs.
Hand 2 cooler. I put the guy the rest of the way in on the turned nut flush which paired the board. He turns over 22 for the 2s full of Js. Obviously lots of times a stack that's down is showing up here with Jx, overpair, or weaker flush on the shove. He just happened to flop a hidden set. If he was deep I would have likely folded to an aggressive raise on the paired J. Another player commented that he was losing there all day everyday in my spot regardless of stack size, I disagreed that if the stacks were deep and the board pairs, against a raiser I can sometimes let go of the nut flush. I guess only thing in this case I would have done differently was raise my draw on his flop bet and get him all in before the turn.
