As you can see a pig pot (he probably had a King or if he was on a draw that call on the river was the worst i've ever seen).
That wasn't the first big pot he looses recently so when we were on a blind fight on the very next one i thought he can be on some tilt.
For info guy is 50/21/1 on 62 hands i got on him

Here is the second hand :

Basically, i can't see him on a 9 after his raise on the flop.
As I raised preflop, I thought he would try to trap me if he had a 9.
So maybe a 2 or some over cards (since he didn't reraise preflop I can't think of an over pair)
I decided to pay once after that K on the turn since i thought he was on some tilt and then maybe try to steal the pot.
The second K on the river made me feel a bit comfortable about the fact he probably didn't have one but as he bet and if i raised only hands who beated me gonna called, i decided to flat called.

Given the "reads" I got on him, what do you think of the play I made ?
I'm gonna give the result after as i don't want result-oriented comments :p ;)

I think the second hand is fine but I raise more preflop.

He doesn't seem to be too aggressive postflop which gives a little less weight to calling down, but there's not much aside from 9x/22 or an unlikely Kx or overpair that has you beat.

I would raise more preflop as well. I'd probably lead the turn to try to control the pot sizing myself and consider folding to a raise.

seems okay to me except your PF raise is slightly weird, just make it 1.50+/your standard if you have one (in cash games i always raise pot when i'm the one opening)

leading the turn would be silly imo. he doesn't call with any worse and he doesn't fold anything better. i just think it's kind of a spewy "information" bet
