      MP2 raises to $6.00, Hero calls $6.00, CO folds, BU raises to $24.00, 3 folds, Hero calls $18.00.

      His preflop play is very loose so i didnt give much credit to the squeeze. Is the flop action correct?

      Hi undercover82!

      I wouldn't call with KQs out of position. To play with KQ in a reraised pot out of position sucks because in case you don't hit you have to fold and in case you hit you canmot be sure to be ahead. I would fold preflop to his squeeze. To avoid this scenario you could reraise preflop after the raise from MP2. This way you often get position because only really strong hands can call or raise you. As played I would check/call the flop and make a half potsize bet on the turn to find out what I'm up against.

      Good luck at the tables!
