      Hi,


      Tough against an unknown, especially since apart from 87 there aren't many draws out there. So on the turn since even 87 got there unless you think he can flat JJ-QQ preflop (very rare BUvsCO) or minraise air/Tx on the flop, you don't really have many reasons to continue even tho it sucks to fold KK.

      I think most players will of course call the minraise, then it depends how tight you think he is. If he's a loose maniac it's a calldown unless you think you can induce a jam by 3betting, if he has ~14/12/2 stats i think you're toast on that turn almost always. Note that some players will tell you you shouldn't ever fold an overpair against an unknown at nl10 and they're right that going broke isn't a huge mistake ever, but if he's at all straightforward you're just dead there so often that it's important to consider folding.

      Weird that he didn't jam the river, maybe he played Tx aggressively or he got spooked thinking you had 87 yourself or thought he no longer had the best hand with 65, but most likely he should still jam the river if he raised the flop for value.


      Hope it helps.
