Part 1 - Yes. I'm trying to get all in right here & now. The only hand I'm truly afraid of here is KJ, KQ - and even then, I'm drawing to 9 outs. As it stands, I'm looking at any Q, J as an out, all hearts, and a backdoor straight. I'm all in putting my opponent to the decision. In addition, he's a half stack monkey - even easier.
Part 2 - Not quite sure what you mean here, but if he reveals the King by accident or on purpose, I'm believing I have some fold equity by overshoving his reveal. Perhaps I'm ever the optimist, but I think he's less inclined to call a shove when he shows a card, indicating he wants you to fold. I'm still shoving.

Well, you already know that I am a pretty tight player, so I'm probably folding to his bet.

However, the one thing everyone should say is that a flat call here is not in your best interest

Banks, I've been called the biggest nit on the planet, but you can't fold this hand! In fact, if you know for a fact that villain has a king, then you're a favorite in the hand! (51%-49%). Any chance he folds is just the extra equity cherry on top,

I did go with the hand - we got it all in - villain showed K9 and I did not improve. But the play was still correct.
