      well there is just 3 hands that beat me on the flop and QQ and KK are so rare since the pot isnt 3bet and he has only one combo of each, but there are a few worse hands that call here like, AA, AK sometimes AQ,K7s,Q7s

      Hello xoshix33,

      Preflop: Why do you Call in first place here? Only option to play here would be either to squeeze or just fold. :) No way you can Call with KQo here, horrible hand to play in multiway pots.

      As played
      Postflop: You pointed out only few combos, where even K7s/Q7s might not be very likely if the guy is a tight player. :) Neither I don't get why should a AQ guy Call/Raise vs you? Therefore I would just give it up vs the BB line here. We haven't invested much and neither I don't really expect the guy to overplay just TP hand while we both show strength.

      Best Regards.
