The first hand was a fold, so well played.
Although you should call on the flop. There are many implicit things that do not favor you.
The villain plays any hand so this spot was too risky to continue.
In the 2nd hand you should have called instead of going up.
I understand that you are at a comfortable table but you should not neglect your form.
A KJs is not a hand that deserves a lot of action in that position.
In this particular case, you should take the opportunity to defend your hand that is very good.
If you reappear in this flop, any player of those characteristics (with low PFR) will discard his hand. That is most likely.
You must think of a strategy to get more value in the streets that are to come and not stay in those flops that have no risks for you.
That first hand, I think I play that identically to you. Seems very standard with such a nasty turn card.
Second hand, I think I would just call with a plan to lead out on even a remotely scary turn card. A raise, especially that big, is going to push out all pocket pairs, 7's, and Ax. Sure once in a great while, the guy with 33 is going to spike on the turn and get all your money...but you have a much better chance of getting value by just calling and letting players catch up. I would be inclined to lead out something like $2.50-$3 on any turn besides a K, J, 7, or 2/3/4/5 of diamonds...all other turns bring some other draw that I would want to charge to continue. The ideal turn would probably be an ace, as every Ax would call you down for all their money at these stakes. Obviously you check K,J,7 because you no longer need protection and you can let the other 2 guys bluff at it...or let them try to bet thin for value when in reality...they are crushed.

The first hand is played fine. When a loose passive player like this pots in on the turn on an obvious board like this, we usually need to give him credit and just let him win the hand.
The second hand why not C-bet the flop? If we had a hand like AQ, would we not think something to the tune off "I dont want to C-bet out of position against two players, because at least one of them is always going to call me". Well then they are also going to call you, when you actually have a K, so why not bet and get some value?
You dont need to pot it, like CO did. That was almost certainly a bluff, but a smaller bet gets plenty of action from pockets pairs and even A high or pure floats. So go like half pot all the way down. You are not getting stacks inside, unless someone have the last K, but by controlling the betting yourself, you can likely get more value from BTN than this.
Hello! The first hand is a good decision. This opponent plays a very large range of hands, and he may have cards to close the street. The second time I liked your check-raise, it was a very interesting move, but you could set a trap by making a call and wait him second barrel.
