      It's very close. It's mostly a *sigh* call imo because you get awesome odds. He only needs to have a hand like QQ with FD or KJ a few times vs his entire range to make it a call.

      What you could consider is 3betting preflop. SB vs BB KQs is a very strong hand and you also have position. NL5 opponents are more than capable of calling with worse there and also playing their hands badly postflop. :)

      Hello Sikac,

      For the given odds I doubt that I'd fold it here. He may easily have a lot of worse PPs and of definitely worse Kx hands. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
