      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q, K.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, MP3 raises to $1.20, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.80.

      Flop: ($2.55) 5, Q, 6 (2 players)

      I called his reraise because of his high pfr.

      What you think about my play at flop and turn?

      Thank you

      I would fold preflop. You are out of position, 17 pfr is not that high (35 sample is not accurate). I think you played it well postflop. He's agressive and the flop is dry slowplaying ok here I guess.

      King-Queen in Middle Position = fold, unless somebody as already called

      Look at 3bet stat, PFR stat doesn't really say much althou 17 is really high for a FR player afaik, that's a stat close to what most SH players are raising.

      Regardless, I'd still not be thrilled about calling out of possition with KQ even against this player. But as you say you thought you had a read on the player so I guess it's possible.

      As played post-flop: ok.

      Raising and reraising ranges tend to be very different, the latter often much tighter than the former. Unless that player has been 3betting constantly i would just muck KQs, it's pretty but will get you into more trouble than it's worth out of position.

      As played if you do decide to call it's with the idea that you are faring well against his range, so you have to treat TP2K has the nuts postflop on that board. Whether you play it slow or not is up to you, and is based on how aggressive you think that guy is. If you think he will fire again with air on the turn your line is best, if not you can probably just check/raise the flop, it looks weaker than a check/call check/raise line.

      Hope it helps.
