      Hello!
      I just have a question.
      Is it profitable to call a 4B(5B) all in or shove preflop? I really have doubts about the strength of this hand PF. I checked my database and from 12 pot all-in preflop 10 of them was against aces over 33k hands.
      I play NL10. Thank's!

      Hello luckylooser88,

      With KK? Of course. :) Against any any stacks I would likely consider going broke with them unless I know the opponent better.

      Best regards.

      Sorry, I'm not satisfied with such a short answer :D
      Can you detail this a bit more? Keep in mind that I play NL 10, where 4bet bluff(5bet bluff) are so rare that we can neglect them and lets say the pot is not played with a fish, I'm playing against an ok player or better.
      PS: It's not a frustration post nor anything like that :P

      Post a hand. :) Can't be more detailed without it. Or what kind of opponent? Don't ask for detailed play if you didn't even mention what kind of player he was or what kind of action there is.

      Easiest way to say for KK, we are going broke. :) In all spots here. Unless you post more about opponents.
