      Preflop: I'm not a fan of cold calling with your hand. We can expect at least sb if not also bb to make a call. I would therefore go for squeeze if I wanted to play it. This may look like overplaying it but we do have the ultimate position and we want to play against only one player.

      Flop: If you want to raise, do it bigger - $0,80. When SB calls us he might have weaker Q so we want to protect it on the turn.

      Turn: I like your bet on the turn. When he calls for the second time we should be careful. He looks loose but there is possibility he has 2 pair hand or even set here.

      River: I'm not so much afraid of flush as the possibility of 2 pair here. Since he plays so loose he might have even 58 or 89... Since he's so short I would make a $1 bet or just check behind for information. I tend to loose some value but at least I get info for our next hand.

      Hello GSG777,

      Preflop: Your KQo ain't gonna be a very strong hand in multiway pot and way too often you gonna do mistake with it. So either I'd just fold the hand or Squeeze/Fold with my blockers.

      As played
      Flop: Of course raising is somewhat considerable. But now again, how many worse hands are going to continue? Not even that many draws are possible. Neither you don't know what you gonna do vs 3bet? I might even take pot control line.

      As played
      River: Well, doubt that you are getting here 3 streets value. How many worse hands are going to pay you?

      Best Regards.
