No reads just got into auto pilot mode playing 1 table took profit off the table and came back with a fresh stack.

Facing a co open and the btn over calls I have KQs in the bb to defend.

I nearly raised it but decided to over call the btn. Is there any good doing this oop?

Confused why the co doesn't c-bet flop and leaves it to the btn so now I'm stuck in the mud with some equity invested.

Ok here is the >>hand<< great turn for me and can value bet on the river hoping for some more $$$ from?

Showdown and now even more confused about what the btn had?

Hey Forrest,

it should heavily depend on the opponent types if I prefer squeezing over calling. Seeing a guaranteed flop with this beautiful hand closing the action is definitely never a mistake.

OTF I like leading out with that type of draw where a lot of turn cards can be good for us and for our playabilty. You could also go for a x/r here since the BU might take a stab at the pot with a much wider than usual range when everybody checks to them.

You could also consider leading out OTT since it is a card that I expect people to checkback a lot. KJ/QJ might call a halfpot lead here and 2 pair+ might even raise.

River is fine.
