      What to do against player who almost never raises pre-flop and then check/raises your kings:D I think that I should fold flop or if I believe that he might have QQ, AK, (maybe KK^^) then call down all the way (he would probably push river anyway:) )

      Hi Kaitz

      Maybe its just me but I read your folding AA/KK posts and I feel that you may be too passive with these considering the flops !

      Reraise - you were in position, at least then you would know where you stand. If he comes over the top then you can let go I suppose (considering the opposition) but for these hands I definitely would have made a stand at the flop and re-evaluate further.

      Thats just my comments and I'm no pro but I do feel that these were played a bit passive.

      Will await judges comments :)

      I never fold kings in this spot. He may also have another overpair like TT-KK. I'd shove the turn.

      Why not reraise pre flop to $10 and go allin if he pushes?

      Re-raising pre-flop would be the right thing to do, unless I wouldn´t put him on aces.
      Since I put him on aces fold flop would be right thing to do. If I don´t believe that he has aces, then re-raising preflop/call shove would be the best.

      I think its wrong to put your opponent on a single hand unless you have very good reads. Reraising is an option, but if he has AA, we go broke in all cases and if he has a lower pair, he may fold to a 4-bet. Hence, I think calling is also fine.
