      Overpair is not the kind of hand I'd slowplay very often. Raise flop definitely to ~7$(most times they fold - donkbets = weakness most times, or they're trying to draw cheaply). Then on the turn you go for pot control and evaluate if it comes to the river.

      Hi Henne,
      Like finchy said, an overpair isn't strong enough to slowplay, so I would directly raise the flop (to about 3 times his bet =~ 7$), and try to get him all-in as soon as possible - against a half-stack, TPTK+ is usually a very good hand, so KK is an easy all-in. Against a full-stacked opponent, you could play for pot control if he calls your flop raise, but here it's a push.

      Regards,
      Craig

      swiss is right, I did not see the stack size and refered to the opponent as a full stacked one.
