Oh well Fold and Nice Flop, Not so nice Turn

I've been having disconnect issues on Full Tilt again. I just wish I knew if it was my connections or issues with the software again. It stinks, I will tell you that.

Two hands today.

MP1 is 71/33/2.0 over 22 hands
MP2 is a 14/7/3.1 over 21K hands He 3 bets 2.1%, CBets 71% Folds to 4 bet 33%

Hand #1
Full Tilt Poker $0.50/$1 Pot Limit Hold'em - 9 players -
The Official Hand History Converter

BTN: $54.25
SB: $100.00
BB: $183.25
Hero (UTG): $100.00
UTG+1: $60.50
UTG+2: $18.10
MP1: $122.35
MP2: $106.00
CO: $102.65

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is UTG with Qh Qd
Hero raises to $3.50, 2 folds, MP1 raises to $6, MP2 raises to $23, Hero??

Is this an obvious isolation move by steady regular against a loose player?

What's best here, call? raise? fold? What's better than what?

Villain is 71/14/3.5 over 7 whole hands.

Hand #2
Full Tilt Poker $0.25/$0.50 Pot Limit Hold'em - 8 players -
The Official Hand History Converter

MP2: $70.25
Hero (CO): $50.50
BTN: $50.00
SB: $28.25
BB: $10.00
UTG: $86.80
UTG+1: $48.60
MP1: $52.00

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is CO with Qs Js
4 folds, Hero raises to $1.75, 1 fold, SB calls $1.50, 1 fold

Flop: ($4.00) Kh Ah Tc (2 players)
SB bets $0.50, Hero raises to $3, SB calls $2.50

Turn: ($10.00) Th (2 players)
SB bets $3, Hero calls $3

River: ($16.00) 9s (2 players)
SB bets $16, Hero ??

SB only has $4 more after this bet. Do I just raise and cross my fingers? Call? Fold?

What about turn?

Have a good weekend!!

H1: You are probably close to the bottom of your range for getting it in here. So, to maximize your equity, you need MP1 in the hand. I just call and look to get it in w/ no A or K on the flop (though I'd look to check raise in hopes the donk adds more money to the pot). I'd say call > raise > fold.

H2: gross, i have no idea on the river... I like raising small on turn to 8 or 7.5. If he shoves or calls and shoves the river you can fold knowing you most likely were dead.

H1) I would say fold>raise>call. MP2 is pretty tight, so his 4-bet range is almost never worse than JJ+/AKs. Given that you still have MP1 to consider, I think you're pinched in a bad spot. Fortunately, you've invested little, so folding is only a small loss.

H2) Pretty gross, but I probably call. Small flush is probably more likely than boat, since a boat probably check-raises turn rather than donking out. Folding is probably fine, but I'm usually calling here.

H1) I folded. It didn't help that the flop came out 66Q. Dang!!!

H2)I just called and he showed 3 pair with A9o so flopped straights are sometime good.
