      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG1 shows a flush, ace high (Ac As)
      Hero shows two-pair, kings and fours (Kc Kh)

      UTG1 wins with a flush, ace high (Ac As)

      I know from the stats that he is just calling raise with AK pre-flop.

      Is there any situation when I should fold on All in raise with KK pre-flop? :)

      Sure it happens. You open from UTG, a nit 3-bets you which means { QQ+, maybe AK } and another nit cold4bets which means { KK+ }, chances are with you blocking most of the KK combos somebody in there has AA and you're not too happy with your KK.

      That's not such a situation tho. Your opponent is a random fish with 43bb or so and there is always a chance he just limp/shoves with worse for the hell of it so you can't fold KK, even tho it's somewhat uncomfortable against a 14/1/0.4 after 180 hands.

      Hope it helps.
