      Like the topic says, is it ever right to fold KK preflop?

      In this example, we had a raiser (3 bb) in 1st position I think. right behind him I had KK and minraised it (to lure him in the pot, make the pot bigger, make others fold etc)

      Guy behind me calls. then a fold. The guy on the button min raises me.... Original raiser calls and I should think this screams ACEEEEEES but I did not put the guy on aces. I shove all in and both the other raisers call.

      KK(my holding) v 55 v A :club: Q :club:

      using pokerstove, I should be winning ~55% of the time. 55 18.58% and AQs 26.16

      we were barely in the game, this was pretty early on - the chance to triple up and criple two other players looked pretty good to me.

      the 55 guy hit another 5... why he even thought about 55 being good in that spot is beyond me.... anyway, what'd you guys think? :s_evil:

      there are some bubble spots where you should fold but almost never.
