      raise the hand preflop and cbet on the flop

      if called, i still might think about a bet on the turn (with the K coming) as there are flush draws (that i have to deny proper odds against) and small aces that might called on the flop but fold to a turnbet

      Fishy ppl that call small aces generally go 3 streets with em, im not sure a turn bet is going to fold an ace out.

      Definantly though KQs is a raiser from MP2 for me. No point letting BB see the flop with 72o here and catching a K72 rainbow to go broke on in a nothing pot.

      When I've been pretty active at the table(raising), I switch gears a bit, because regulars start 3betting. They see me as a very aggro player(which I have been for couple months) and they adjust accordingly, calling my cbets with pp and stuff.

      btw, I don't overplay KQ on K72 board vs a regular anyway =)

      I would still raise KQs. I would rather raise/fold to a 3 bet than limp/call a raise oop,or were you limp / folding ?

      Anyway as played I would c/f flop and after K came bet turn for free river .

      FR table, in MP2, I'm folding KQs preflop or raising it up, leaning more heavily to folding though. Its one of those hands that gets me into a lot more trouble than its worth.

      As played though, I would make a crying call on the river.
