      I knew one of them had AAs that is why I didn't reraise preflop,
      my plan was if I hit the flop it was going allin which is why I checked/folded the flop, was my line okay?

      well if you 'knew' he had aces its a clear fold pre. If you think you are still good i would just shove it pre

      Yes, I can see what you are saying, but calling the extra 90c and then hitting the flop I would of stacked them both

      Hello ukwagon,

      Nah, just ship it preflop, there is no point in Calling, it's almost 50% of your stack. If you really think that he is having Aces so often even though I don't find folding myself in here, just ship it preflop, way too hard to fold your Kings. It's also NL5, so I don't mind going broke there. Or if you really are that sure, then only possible way to play the kings there is fold after the 4bet but I see it way too weak.

      Best regards.
