      I know you're probably gonna say something like "You can never fold kings preflop", but im still gonna ask.. do you think i should have folded? Because i dont really see anybody shoving this deep with a worse hand. I didnt really wanna call, but i always remember in these moments of that Dan Harrington quote "Never fold pocket kings preflop"..

      Hello Alficor1,

      How often does he squeeze? What's his 3bet? Has he been aggressive? How passive is he defending his blind? How active were you earlier on with stealing?

      But it's hard to fold KKs on NL10 against pretty loose opponent. He can even consider us just stealing the blinds. So I don't really find a fold there even being so deep. Well played.

      Best regards.
