      i hit top pair, villain bets two streets,
      on flop he may have draw, i have to make his draw too expensive so i bet.
      on turn he may have complete straight or simply some other hand, so i bet and when i got reraised i understand i am beaten by straight.
      Is all my thoughts and moves correct here?

      Nh, I think you're beat here on the turn. Maybe not by KQ since it's not that likely he donk/calls flop with it, but most Ax hands that could call you pfr (AK AJ AT) beats you, and atleast no worse hand will be raising the turn like this. Well played
