      Preflop: I don't like Calling with KQo being OOP, I would likely just 3bet there against some kind of aggressive stealer but against this one I might consider folding the best line here.

      As played
      Flop: Check/Call seems to be fine here but I would fire next street if he checks behind.
      Turn: I think against such guy we can likely fold our hand here, W$SD 100 and WTS 23 and also he seems to be pretty tight, I don't expect him to bluff 2 streets a lot. But Calling with some kind of reads ain't wrong.
      River: I am folding here, looks like we are beaten.

      Best regards,

      I also prefer 3-betting KQ, but I think call is not terrible, just hard to play your hand oop
      One option is bet yourself on the flop and turn and then c/c river
      Also I think nothing wrong is not c/r flop and going with your hand, although that might isolate against better hands, so maybe c/c flop, lead turn is also fine option to get value for top pair

      He is bluffing at some times on the river, but a lot of times he is valuebetting so c/f seems a little better than calldown
