      Hero shows (Ks Kd)

      Given his stats and his bet sizing, he is protecting a set here every time and I should let my overpair go, correct?

      Hello member001,

      Unfortunately against rather a passive opponent we will rather see a set here than a TP. They ain't playing their TP that aggressively and therefore I might even consider making the crying fold. His raise size doesn't indicate to a very weak hand either.

      Best regards.
