      And is part (note part) of the reason I can't get my BR to go anywhere significant.

      What to do...it's very frustrating...

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, K.
      MP1 raises to $0.08, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.08, Hero raises to $0.40, 3 folds, MP1 raises to $0.95, MP3 calls $0.87, Hero calls $0.55.

      Flop: ($2.88) 5, 9, 3 (3 players)
      MP1 bets $2.31, MP3 folds, Hero calls $1.05(All-In).

      Turn: ($6.24) 9 (2 players)

      River: ($6.24) 5 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $6.24.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and nines(Ks Kd).
      MP1 shows two pairs, aces and nines(Ac Ah).

      MP1 wins with two pairs, aces and nines(Ac Ah).

      Hello Greedyfly,

      Shove it preflop and if he has there AA then also make a note on him, that he picks such a line with them. And just unlucky, we can't really find a fold here. Just keep playing your A-game and don't worry about such situations. They just make you tilt and with what you lose money, not with losing KK vs AA in NL2.

      Best regards.
