      Hello adsefghijk,

      Well, you can't really figure here for him to have only overcards. :) Especially when he is rather tighter side. It rather comes really up to your expectations if you expect the opponent to bluff here but while some draws missed it shouldn't be that huge mistake. But most likely without knowing the opponent good I'd myself just lay it down, there are still a lot better hands which beat us, any PP/Tx and maybe even better holdings.

      Best Regards.
