Hi,

Hand #1 depends a lot on how CO plays, it's tough on that board to have anything except Kx and 9x. If you think CO can float other stuff and bet the turn when you check you can check/call once, otherwise he'll likely just check back 9x and bet Kx, so you can check/fold if he bets the turn and valuebet the river yourself if he checks behind. If you think CO will call again 99 and maybe even some pocket pairs you can also bet/fold the turn, but don't make 1/3 pot it's just asking for trouble, \$0.6 is fine.

As played river is a fold.

Hand #2 you're better off checking back on that turn card, tons of two pairs/sets/straights a fish could have that are now ahead of you. It's probably fine to valuebet a river blank if he checks the river to you again. If you want to bet/fold the turn it's not horrible either, but again don't make those 1/3 pot bets if you do choose to bet.

Hope it helps.
