      -----

      MP1 was 61/26/0 over 23. AG% - 52 (R - 80).

      TURN
      Decided to take a stab at the pot with some equity to improve.

      RIVER
      Value betting my TP. When raised, I wonder if I could bluffcatch here given his high AG%.
      His hand looks like either a slowplayed monster or a bluff. Possibly a QJ as well.
      I think folding is still the safest option with low variance.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      Preflop call vs MP1 with KQs is pretty borderline. Probably ok to call if you think villain is a fish otherwise fold/bluff.

      Turn semi-bluff is fine, you have a decent amount of equity and opponent may fold.

      River bet for value is good. Vs river raise should be a pretty straightforward fold at these limits unless you've seen villain bluff raise river before. (Most players don't at these limits even if they are aggro preflop).
