      Hey again,

      Is KK defo always worth going broke for per-flop? Could I anticipate AA and even if I could do I continue AI?

      MP2 (Hero):

      SB wins with a flush, ace high(A A).

      without any really particular read on a player don't fold KK :)

      that's just unlucky.

      Hey AKM,

      Is KK defo always worth going broke for per-flop?


      Definitely! :f_thumbsup:

      You only play for about half the full stack and for this amount you should never fold KK unless you face some player who plays like 4/4 and has <1% 3-bet. But I never ever folded KK preflop playing SSS/MSS thus I think you shouldn't worry about it, just stick it in at all times and expect to see QQ/AK and sometimes even JJ or TT from your opponent.

      P.S.: It's very seldom you'll see players playing for full 100BB stacks to fold KK preflop.
