      Hi Benaars

      I'm not a fan of playing KQ in the BB tbh.

      When UTG+1 raises and UTG+2 calls what do you expect them to have that you can beat? UTG+1's raise shows he has a good hand, UTG+2 posted the BB so it is likely he is a fish but he still is in position. So rather just fold the hand preflop.

      as played:
      I don't like the donk either. No Ax hand is going to fold there and they usually have an Ax hand there.
      And turn yeah easy fold.

      Hello benaars,

      While UTG1 has a mid-stack I doubt that squeeze is going to do much. He is most likely just 4b-shipping it anyways. So therefore your line seems to be fine. But the question is if we really should donk the flop. :) Not many worse hands would pay you anyways.

      Best Regards.
