      Wow in both situations I would piss in my pants of fear to call.
      I would fold the first situation actually, you haven't put a lot of money in the pot, why playing for your whole stack on such a scary board?

      I like fold on hand 1. You´re behind here against pair+flushdraw+ he could hold two pair, set, flush.
      I would only call hand 2. if you´re going to re-raise then you have to call all-in shove, since board is so drawy that he could do that easily with Axd or 6xd or even overpair counting for fold equity.
      If turn is none heart I would call his potsize bet again and then evaluate on the river, then they would calm down if they don´t have anything.
