      I think its correct played.
      Dont affraid overpair. KK and AA would raise you preflop.
      Here may be flush draw, AJ, KJ, QJ, maybe also 89s.
      In this limit they love to play suited cards.
      Yes here may ne JJ 44 and 77 also, and if you see here set, its cooler and next hand please, but the villain range is so big. I think whitout reads you cant fold here overpair.

      IMO, waiting also some better player advice

      Agreed. We're not looking to fold overpairs against unknowns for 100bb, they'll usually do enough weird stuff on their own to make it a profitable felting spot for you regardless.


      Hope it helps.
