Two Very Strange Online Hands

I think I'll just post them and then discuss:

Hand #1
Full Tilt Poker $2/$4 Limit Hold'em - 7 players
The Official 2+2 Hand Converter Powered By DeucesCracked.com

Pre Flop: (1.5 SB) Hero is BB with 4 4
5 folds, SB raises, Hero calls

Flop: (4 SB) 4 K K (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets, SB folds

Final Pot: 2 BB
Hero wins 2 BB

Now I'm not one for conspiracy theories, but come on. How exactly did that happen? The guy raises preflop from the small blind, then checks and folds? There are really only 3 possibilities:

1. Misclick
2. After he raised he checked my stats and realized I was unlikely to fold enough for his 7 high barrel-fest to be profitable and decided to just give up.
3. Gremlins

Hand #2
Full Tilt Poker $2/$4 Limit Hold'em - 7 players
The Official 2+2 Hand Converter Powered By DeucesCracked.com

Pre Flop: (1.5 SB) Hero is BTN with K Q
3 folds, CO raises, Hero 3-bets, 2 folds, CO calls

Flop: (7.5 SB) 4 9 T (2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets, CO raises, Hero calls

Turn: (5.75 BB) K (2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets, CO raises, Hero calls

River: (9.75 BB) 9 (2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets, CO raises all in, Hero calls

Final Pot: 12.25 BB
CO shows A T (two pair, Tens and Nines)
Hero shows K Q (two pair, Kings and Nines)
Hero wins 11.75 BB
(Rake: $2.00)

This hand marks the second time in my life I have been trifecta'ed (check/raised on all 3 post flop streets) and also the second time I have won the hand. I was first the victim of the trifecta at Artichoke Joe's in the 15/30 game. I don't remember the hand specifically, but I know I flopped air with AK or AQ and runner runnered two pair. On the hand here, my opponent only had $1 left to raise with on the river, which is basically the reason I bet. It takes a lot of work to get trifecta'ed.
