      I think I'm not calling preflop KQ against a MP1 raise because you are maybe behind. (AQ,AK,...)

      When you will hit a pair you will lose a lot.

      As played i c/c on the flop

      Bet on the turn cause you're paid by AK,KJ

      And again bet on the river 2/3 pot imo. In your case 2$40

      Yeah preflop is fold. If stats are accurate, flop should be check/fold. But I'm more inclined to check/call since almost no-one plays that tight. He probably has stuff like AQ, TT in range as well. Turn and river are fine. I normally wouldn't expect this sort of player to fold AK. Maybe make river like 2.90 to look less scary
