      Hero mucked K Q and lost (-$11.04 net)
      BTN showed Q 5 and won $21.16 ($10.12 net)

      Villain is 40/19 for 105 hands, 57% flop c-bet, 100( this is the first time) turn c-bet, 0.8 agg. He raises 26% from BU.
      Can we call 2 or 3 streets w TP and K kicker
      If I call flop and turn, what about check/push on river ?

      I think calling down is the best play.

      Some alternative lines:
      1. 3bet preflop - He only opens 26% so I guess not
      2. Check/raise the Flop - He doesn't seem so loose so I think c/r may be overplay

      However after seeing this guy open Q5o, I think he definitely opens many worse hands. Maybe he does it on a random basis or maybe he limps some stronger hands like AA/KK.

      Check push seems like overplay especially when villain overbets the River. If he bets less than half pot then a raise would seem more reasonable.
