      no HM, speed.

      I always pay this kind of minr preflop against 2+ players. Is that bad with KQ?

      Flop: I want to charge FD and different GS. When I see raise and reraise I'm not happy. If CO was full stacked and raised me I think I would fold. We beat only QT and he's not doing this with this hand.

      If there were full stacks in the game, what would be the best line? Donk and donk again on Q, K, 8,....2 turn? Basically only A, J, T and 9 are not so good.

      Preflop we could go for a squeeze to take the dead money, but I'm a little concerned about both UTG and CO being short stacked so calling is fine.

      On the flop I like leading here. Quite a lot of draws plus worse made hands could continue.
      When the two short stacks shove, I think we can't fold given these odds.

      If they had full stacks (and not reraised of course), I like donking and I'd donk on most of the turn cards - except A and diamond.
