      Ok guys, here I minraised KK utg cause of some FullTilt preflop challenge. I bet 1/2 the pot cause i want him to call with weak hands/draws
      On turn he started showing action i figured maybe he also has an overpair. On river he bets big, I don't think he has a 6 to complete his straight

      Well honestly, i couldn't really fold my KK overpair to that board

      Guess I should have bet bigger on the flop, and gave up my hand to his intense action on the turn and river?

      since you have 40bb stack i think you can also play for stacks postlfop.
      If you feel that player is really passive and would not bluff turn you can also b/f your overpair, but generally it seems a little too strong to b/f against nl 5 player with your stack

      Hello M1rCea,

      Preflop: Pretty horrible raise actually. Do it 4xBB. You are just giving great odds for others to Call and your hand is still vulnerable.

      As played
      Flop: I'd likely Bet the flop like $0,18.
      Turn: And rather Bet/Fold the turn, we don't beat much anymore anyways. Any 9x beats us, other sets are possible and as well straights are possible. I don't think that he would take such a line with a lot worse hands.

      As played if turn was called
      River: Not much you beat, any 6x now easily beats us as well. Fold it.

      And of course add to full stack if you playing BSS.

      Best regards.
