      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:spade: , Q:diamond:
      MP2 raises to $2,00, MP3 calls $2,00, CO folds, BU calls $2,00, Hero raises to $10,00, BB folds, MP2 calls $8,00, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($24,50) T:heart: , 9:spade: , 7:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $14,00, MP2 raises to $41,78 (All-In), Hero calls $26,25 (All-In).

      Turn: ($106,53) 6:spade:
      River: ($106,53) A:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $106,53

      Is it alright to squeeze KQ here, or is it too loose?

      Once I c-bet here I'm commited and can't really fold, as my pot equity is only 24%. Should I not c-bet?

      I don't squeeze KQo. If you get called you're always behind.

      I don't agree that you are committed. You only have 4 J outs + 3 K out + 3 Q outs = 10 outs, from which you have to discount a bunch in case he's already hit trips, AA, KK , QQ, or flushdraw.

      I fold preflop and fold after reraise on flop.

      you can squeeze a certain percentage fold a certain percentage, I would just check fold flop once you are called you are miles behind, he opened from MP2 and called your raise so at worst i'd say 99+ AQ+ and i would say that is a wide range for him.

      I would prob just fold preflop myself if i squeeze i usually squeeze AQ+ JJ+ and throw some junk hands in there.

      You would get shoved there a lot of times, so c/f is probably better line.
      I´d likely just call pf, since if you don´t hit then it is very hard to take pot down postflop and KQ doesn´t play terrible in multiway pot.
