      As played pre-flop seems fine.

      On the flop, I'd assume that with stats like that he either has a high pocket pair or AQ+ maybe KQ. I don't think he would have tried set-mining with that pre-flop call.

      Seems like a good play, all you could really worry about is AA and you'd have gone all in pre-flop with your KK anyway if villain did have that.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I'd just CB the flop. :) Check/Raise looks a lot stronger move and he might even fold some smaller overpairs there. And I'd just Check/Shove if I am even going for a Check/Raise.

      Best Regards.
