      Preflop:raise ,raise , RAISE please.KQs is good hand even you will be OPP and too good to call only one lone lone limper who is so scared that limps from CO.
      Flop: 2 top pairs is very good hand and imho u played flop and turn good.
      On river completes too many draws so bet/fold would be ok or check/f or check/call depending on opp.If he is good,adequate, not habitual bluffer you should fold.Look at his AF stats in streets,on river.
      Good luck :)

      raise kq s preflop everytime when limped to you .
      as played river is a bet/fold or chec/fold
      if you check he is not beting with worse and if you bet he is not turning a hand with showdown value into a bluff , he will just call

      It was a lack of concentration on the river. I didn't reliase the obvious draw had got there. Too many tables open most likely, quality over quantity I guess.
      Thanks again
