      Results follow:

      UTG shows two pairs, kings and fives(Kh Kd).

      UTG wins with two pairs, kings and fives(Kh Kd).

      Basic theory says to push here, but isn't it a fold against opponent with 8/5/10.0 stats ?

      Hey neriukasas,

      according to standard strategy that's a nice hand, but if you play with stats, you can see this guy has very tight stats and a short stack, so he probably plays short stack strategy as well. And if that's the case then you should push against his UTG raise KK+ only.

      More on this subject you can find in this article...
