Looking at it I would think a 3bet is best, since he is so aggro? But what about calling or folding, are there any arguments for doing that? Cutoffs VPIP/PFR is wrong here, it is 26/21 in my replayer at least.. 31% steal from CO (4/13), AF of 5, Fold to flop cbet 67% (2/3), Flop cbet 67% (8/12). Fold to 3bet 100% but too small sample size (1/1).

What about dubbing in this spot? I don't want to give him a free river card, as he could easily have QJs, KQ, KJ and AQ or AJ with a heart that would call a double barrel. And if he raises I can almost always assume I'm beat right? Or is checking back and seeing a river a better play?

For hand #2 ****
Sometimes I like to check back in this spot because it induces a bluff in the river, or a blocker bet from villain with a weaker King.
Although villain might check call a river bet assuming you are bluffing since he/she checked the turn, or, he/she just accepts that maybe you hit your flush but the odds you're giving him/her are good to have a hope you probably have JJ or QQ or maybe even as stated before, he/she hopes you are bluffing.
Check calling on this flop usually means villain probably has a low pocket pair or villain can hold A10 , or Q10.
I cannot put villain on pocket 10s because the flush draw on the flop would have made villain check raise you to bloat the pot if you have a flush draw, or more likely -- hold a King with a strong kicker willing to get your money in on the turn.
But villain checked the turn, so there is no way villain has a better hand than yours.
The only exception is if villain is a fish and doesn't know what they are doing...which is a high chance in NL5 ...not as much as the good ol days, but every once in a while you find these fish that will suprise you with their awful play.
You will not be able to put them on their hand the first pot you get into with them.. but after that you should adjust accordingly and know villain doesn't understand how to protect their strong holding, and you could hit your flush next time and reel the money in.
My advice is to keep notes on that player so in the future you know how to outplay him/her.
Gl at the tables !!!

Hand #1: Villain looks like he can fold to 3-bets and flop cbets. Our hand blocks other Ax hands, and can give us equity to bluff with when we flop flush/straight draws. Just don't put more than 1 street in when you flop an ace.
Hand #2: When you 3-bet, that folds out a lot of suited combinations. Your 3-bet could have been bigger. Given the SPR was still kinda high, I think we can bet/fold the turn.

hand 1, easy 3-bet.
Hand 2, bet the turn. I think this was a trick question though.

Hand1: imo (currently, this changes a lot every day ):
It’s 3bet or fold hand, mostly fold sometimes 3bet because he will call quite wide (aggressive, IP) so we don’t want to bluff too much. (Also maybe ... maybe hands with 2 blockers against broadway range are better hands to select to try bluff)
