      Hello. My opponent wasn't that aggressive during that sample. Still I think he might be trying to protect his Kx or simply betting pair + draw. Is my raising here an overplay? Thanks

      Hello,

      Preflop it is a little bit questionable to open KQo form this position.

      I think that against a passive opponent it's better to call the flop and call most of the turn cards.
      We really don't want to see a 3bet here on the flop and I'm not really sure if he donks draws at all.

      Best,
      Plamen

      The table looked like this with bunch of tight guys behind me and fishes on BU and BB.



      Do you have a plan for river? If a blank comes on both turn and river, is folding ok? Not sure if BB is capable of betting worse Kx all the way.

      Considering it is less likely to get called here and play OOP with this hand I don't really mind raising but this is probably the weakest hand that I would open.

      On the river, if he continues barreling I would most likely fold.
      He looks passive and I'm not really sure that he will bet worse Kx on three streets.
