      i felt like i was beaten in this hand purely because i always feel sketchy playing KK/AA postflop.... luckily the guy wasn't the best player in the world and called me down, but i still felt a little uncomfortable especially due to his shove on the turn. but then again i felt like he was just shoving because of his stack and maybe he felt pot committed.... either way, what should i do in this situation if/when it arises again? maybe i will not be so lucky..

      Hello DrDunne,

      While he may easily even ship it with worse hands which includes some pair+FD and for the given odd I don't think that I'd get it way. We only need something like 22% equity which should be enough vs his shipping range.

      Best regards.
