      Hey Nipbourne,

      Often KQs is going to have an equity disadvantage vs UTG+1 open-raise. It's going to be fine to call here multiway, but it's useful to know where you stand if UTG+1 puts in a lot of action on Q-high or K-high flops.

      Neither player is likely that strong. 2 barreling on decent turn cards can be considered. Checking back is ok though.

      You have to call one-bet on turn with top-pair-good-kicker.

      At first river seems like a call, but upon analysis I think a fold is decent. Firstly I'd assume someone with these PF stats does not bluff much, you'd know more than me about his tendencies. His value betting range given a tight UTG open-range is basically AQ and slowplays. If he'd opened from a later position I'd definitely call river because he can have a selection of worse Qx.

      Also the texture runs out in a way that is not conducive for him to bluff. I.e the Q does not put any additional draws out there that he may semi-bluff and follow through on brick river. Cliffs - likely not bluffing, and value range beats you.
