      I think preflop is ok to call.

      On the river? It`s not the best board for him to tripple barrel when both FDs missed, and i thought he won`t be bluffing often?

      Preflop: I don't mind calling in BU vs blind with KQo by default. But from CO I would just 4bet or fold. I don't think we can call here by default as I don't think the default reg 3bets that much against CO openers.

      Turn: Definitely not folding here. If you call you should 100% call all blank rivers. I think even shoving the Turn for protection is also a viable option (pot is already so big relative to stack sizes so making thin protection plays make more sense as compared to making such plays in a single raised pot.
