Stuuupid stupppid me or him?
Hi guys, it has been a while since I posted here, but I really got irked when I played this hand and replaying it in my head, it just annoys me even more!
(ps- hope you all been well!)
There are 2 hands I would like to ask for advice/ bitch about.
I'm in small blind, with 4th chip stack on table of 9 of a MTT game. (13.5k chips)
200 400 blinds, with 50 ante.
I get dealt ak os.
+3 raises minimum to 800 (he is 3rd chip stack, by 1k)
Everyone folds to me, and i raise to 1600.
villain calls., bb folds, pot is now 4050
flop comes As Qs K d
I bet 2800, hoping to deter a flush or any straight draws.
Villain over bets to 8k, pot is 14850.
I push, all in and he snap calls.
What does he have?
. 9s 10s
Turn : 5 h
flush home run...
My question: What should I have done differently? I did find manage to come to a conclusion in that I may have raised the raiser x3 his bet rather than x 2? I think the fact that I only raised x2 on the raiser was just a tempting bet and he hit a monster draw. Please help!
I have around 49k stack. I am dealer, and blinds are 500 1k, with no antes.
UTG +2 flat calls. everyone folds to me.
I'm dealer with QQ. I re-raise to 3k. SB and villain calls. pot is now 9.5k.
Flop comes 9h 8h 8d.
BOTH check. I bet (excessively) to 9k.
SB folds, villain RE shoves me. What does he have?
After some time? I tank and let my lovely ladies go. I show the guy what I folded and he turns over Ah Kh. To this day I don't know if I made a good fold or not. I think betting 9k was standard in taking a pot down, although I wasn't expecting a re-shove. I thought he had trip 8s, trip 9s, and was afraid of me having a flush draw. Worse case scenario, he holds KK AA. My question is in both these scenarios, I got res-shoved because of flush draws. What should I do to prevent these guys from doing it again? Is it the way I played the hand which puts me in a tough spot? What is the easiest way to deal with this particular scenario? I would love to hear from you guys coz your the only friendly faces I know!

Here are my thoughts:
I think you played the hand well, nothing to regret. The odds where in your favor, dont over think about it.
How much did villain had? How was he playing? If he was a psycho maybe he-d shove an 8, but i find it very unlikely. To me, i'd snap call figuring he may have a flush draw or most possibly a 9. If you're gonna raise so much on flop, then you're willing to believe you're a favorite to win this hand on the flop.
