From micro Zoom table...no reads. Knew an bigger pair was possible, but figured unlikely given villian's preflop call not raise. Comments

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Two indications of strength here. The re-raise on the flop and re-raise on the turn. It's difficult to see these as a threat because of the weakness displayed by the opp. Unfortunately though the zoom format usually means you will have little or no info on them.

To me it looks as though the opp would play a very passive weak game at a normal cash table. Flat call pre-flop was very passive, checking to you was very passive and the raise amounts weren't impressive.

Alternatively, you could say they did a good job at suckering you in to giving up your stack, but at 2NL I doubt this was the case.

Either way, I don't think you could have put them on KK. The only alternative play was perhaps to throw it all in a little earlier. If he calls you would have achieved the same result, you would have been getting value as far as you were aware at the time, but it may have made him muck a better hand by representing a 6x.
