      Hello SR1337,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      You should actually even consider just Bet/Folding it right on flop. I don't really see him picking such a line with a lot worse and his play looks some kind of set. Also even if you Call the flop then I don't like raise at all on turn, you just isolating yourself against better hands.

      Best regards.

      Thanks for the warm welcome!

      Forgot to mention that the opponent had stats 20/4

      Why should I consider bet/folding flop w KK, he could have played 99+ that way, or bluff, since the I couldn't have hit the board strong.

      Now lets assume I called the flop raise, should I just call him down from there on? To my mind it is almost a perfect board for kings and it would be though to lay them down on such a board...

      think such passive preflop opponent is passive postflop too, he will never raise 99+ here or fdraw, so maybe better fold flop

      Most likely just Call and reevaluate it on river. And if he is rather passive opponent then I don't think that he would raise with such small overpair.
