      Hey D,

      I don;t like flatting pre in CO. 3bet or fold KQo vs MP.. There are too many people behind that can squeeze or call and make your hand worse. Plus, against most MP you don't really crush them with KQo.

      As played, it's hard to say because you should have a better idea of how your hand can win the pot postflop if you call preflop. I would just not call preflop.

      I think when your opponent check the turn, he caps his range so you should bluff often imo. You can still represent some flushes, sets and 2pair. That said, not with that turn size. Bigger turn bet and also 3/4 or so river bet. These small bets don't generate folding equity because they give good odds and they also exclude the nuts from your range.
