      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, Q.
      2 folds, BU raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.80, BB folds, BU calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($1.7) 7, T, 4 (2 players)

      i did this because he was a fish with 70% VPIP and 30% PFR. is this justifiable?

      The pre flop play could have been fine if you were in position, but OOP KQ doesn t play very well.A call or a fold was better IMO.
      Then on the flop you should have C-bet because you took control of the hand pre-flop and you can tell a story to your oponent that you ve got an overpair. If he calls you might then give up on the turn.(re-evaluate).
      I would say with all the respect due that your two check call were pretty awful.
      Sorry for my english wich is pretty awful too.

      3-bet larger to 1$
      c-bet or c/f flop
      if you c/c flop then c/rai turn
      you have big fold equity, if get called then a lot of outs to improve and he might fold there better hands
