NL5 Can I call down w/ Two Pair??

Villain UTG +2 - $5.05
Hero (CO) - $4.87

folds to villain who opens to .15
I decide to call with KJs, Goes heads-up to the flop

Flop (.37) QKJr
Villain c-bets for .18
Hero calls .18, my plan here is to call down on safe turns and rivers because I feel he can bluff here with any Tx combo. If he flopped the nuts or a set of Queens then nice hand m8

Turn (.73) QKJ7r
Villain bets .35
Hero calls .35

River (1.43) QKJ73r
Villain bets .90
Hero?
Am I just stationing and over-valuing Two pair here or is this an appropriate spot to bluff catch?

Re: NL5 Can I call down w/ Two Pair??

I am interested in how people feel about calling a bet with KJs given that the villain opens UTG+2. I think that on many flops we are going to be dominated by villains range when we hit top pair. Does anyone know of good programs to simulate calling ranges against perceived opening ranges?

Good point, I made the decision to call this particular villain because I had seen him open things like KTo or QTo regardless of position which is why I assumed he could have a bunch of Tx combos

With description you've give this seems alright but not loving it by the river. Against reggish players you just shouldn't call pre though with KJ because it indeed is behind most of the utg+2 opening range.

You need 40% equity to call, you have 37% vs 66+ KJ+ Aj+, and you have position. I think it is definitely a difficult spot to play in but can be profitable if you abuse position
