      Next time try to use a converter, because this way it's a little hard to determine correct data, I'm not sure about your position, but I think you are sitting on MP3 which means fold with KQ.

      ...anyway, after you got reraised by Koen85 you should fold your KQ, because your bet: remaining stack ratio is 1:3 and you would need 1:2,5 or less to make a push against a reraise.

      This is a play according to the basic strategy and I hope I answered your question.

      Fold KQ preflop when sitting UTG. As played, fold to his re-raise.

      Yeah, the most important things are: 1) don't raise kq utg and 2) find yourself a converter ;) .

      Of course fold to a reraise.
