      1 hand: he had a set didnt he? thats a standard play with a set and I would fold to the raise on turn.

      2 hand: what hand could he raise with in UTG and then call u both pre and on flop? QQ, AQ+ or loosely 66 and now he raise the flop, it screams AQ, maybe AK, QQ but he would probably had 4bet preflop, 66 is a possibility. All hand have u beat. I would fold.

      as you said
      first case: MP2 wins with two pairs, aces and nines (A 9).
      second case: UTG1 wins with two pairs, aces and fives (A K).

      1 case: If he makes a habit of calling with weak Ace pre it would be gold for u, he is almost always behind ur range and the only thing is to not pay him off when he gets lucky and extract maximum value when u have a lock.

      2 case: If he is that aggressive with that kind of hand- u should be able to get paid of most times u have a lock, ofcourse he will have very good hands sometimes but two pair + has very good chance to stand his allin, so with such hands i would push like crazy if the board isnt to ugly.
