      25/13, 15% open raise CO. Fold resteal CO 60%. Fold to cbet in 3bet pot 43%. 1,6 AF. 1,1K hand.

      I decided to 3bet, because versus KQ it is my standard ( was multitabling a lot ).
      The cbet on flop is marginal, because he won't fold any T of his range. On the turn I hit TP and I think I have to bet. When he raise and I think he is not gonna bluff raise here, I think I have to fold.

      i think you should definitely give up on the flop here... His range hits that board so hard and your hand is so crappy... you have literally no clean outs, you are OOP against a reg-ish player. There's no way you make money with a cbet here with KQo. Just check/fold it and keep the money. On the turn, check/call imo betting is overplaying your hand once you get called on the flop.. he has so many strong hands, so much equity and given YOUR range you should cbet once and give up often so you need a hand to be able to check/call turns not just bet or check/fold.
