      He opens from MP a lot, so this probably is good call.

      Is it ok to call flop? By his cbet stat it looks that he should have really strong hand. So I don't raise. BUt I could have implied odds, backdoor FD.

      Turn - interestingly but he checks. IF he has strong hand he should bet, but probably is not having stong one anymore.
      Maybe with Jx he is trying to bluffcatch?

      But I still bet, but not believe that by logic this is good, should be not much fold equity.

      Hi,

      Preflop is very marginal. KQo just plays so badly multiway against randoms, you end up giving up way too often.

      Postflop looks good though. Most often, the best hand in MP's range is a hand like QJ which now looks quite weak after you flat 3way and bet the turn. You should have enough equity + folding equity to make him fold that. BB call is not to worrysome because he can call flop to draw to many weak 9x hands, floats 8x, probably lower pairs and low flushdraws as well, possibly some A highs.
