      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is MP with Q :spade: K :diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.17, Hero calls $0.17, 2 folds, SB calls $0.15, BB calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.68) Q :heart: Q :diamond: 4 :diamond: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG bets $0.68, Hero calls $0.68, SB folds, BB calls $0.68

      Turn: ($2.72) 2 :spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $1.68, BB folds, UTG calls $1.68

      River: ($6.08) A :spade: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $2.67, UTG calls $2.67

      Whats right, whats wrong, what can be done better?

      Flop : call 2 players behind to act, can come along with some draws or mid PP.

      Turn : Check through, i bet for value, not sure about the sizing, wanna make it a nice size to shove the river, probably leave it 1:2 SPR and getting it in on the river regardless.

      River : get it in.

      Hello,

      I definitely not like calling KQo here preflop. I'd either 3bet as a bluff or just fold.

      As played preflop, postflop looks good to me and I would have played the same way.

      Best,
      Plamen

      i felt that KQ is too good a hand against villian with position to be 3betting as a bluff. is that true? again KQ seems too good to fold.

      what if we 3bet and face a 4bet then we have to def fold it. thought i'd could do the same bluff (since we're folding) with A9, KT?? and call with hands that wanna play IP against villian like AT+?

      tell me if my thinking is not right, and how to change and the way i play hands IP

      Well usually people does not open hands like KJ or QJ from UTG so we are pretty much dominated.
      Also we are giving good odds for CO and BU to come in and our hand will play even worse in a three-way pot.
      I think it's good enough to 3bet bluff since we have the K and Q blockers.

      Against this guy I'm going to call 22-JJ, and probably AQ/AJs.
