      Hey Cuvash,

      Preflop call is ok vs MP opener. Vs UTG opener KQ might not be profitable to call, but open-raiser is basically MP this hand.

      On the flop I think raising is fine. The wider our MP opener is, the more I like it though. I'd probably make it $1.40 or so, you do actually want to get called by draws + you want to be able to fold to a 3bet.

      Normally the T would be a good card to barrel, but it hits villains range really hard also. I think it's ok to check back and try and reach showdown.
