no read= big problem

Kings in the cutoff, a total unknown is playing his first hand at the table. No HUD stats. He defends. Flop is 458 rainbow. You cbet, he check-raises you. Are you going with this hand, or do you just fold?

In this situation you're just playing the math. Stack sizes? Yes, you're often beat but you're also often killing a lesser over-pair.

that was my thinking as well - I did a combo-counting at the table, 9 combos sets, 4 more of 67s (threw out 67o), 6 more of slowplayed AA, came up with 19 combos that beat me.
99-QQ makes 24 combos that I beat.

I'm going with the hand as well. If he setted you, so be it.
