OK you're scared of spades but that's not the whole deck, the Jack of spades would give you a full/quads that would beat his flush and you keep your hand a bit underrepped that might allow him to bluff a missed As on the river (even though not many of these combos make sense but whatever) or value cut himself with an under set
with KK/JJ your not raising turn cause were afraid of getting sucked out on, you are raising to
-build the pot up w/ the best hand vs someone who takes a line that clearly screams not folding
-get the money in with basically the nuts so the river doesnt kill ur action
in other words, were raising turn not because we are afraid of spades, we are raising so that our opponent commits w/ everything.
