      Hello Kaidz,

      Such a limp/min-raise is way too often a trap with something like KK+. So therefore I'd sometimes even consider folding be better. But of course Calling is possible.

      But if you Call then it should be rather a Check on flop, you just making worse hands to fold and better ones might raise even. So practically donk/fold. But myself I'd Check/Call the flop and reevaluate it on turn. What hands do you beat here which shoves?

      Best regards.
