      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, K.
      UTG2 calls $0.10, 6 folds, Hero raises to $0.55, UTG2 raises to $1.50, Hero calls $0.95.

      Flop: ($3.05) 9, 2, 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $2.10, Hero calls $2.10.

      Turn: ($7.25) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $3.90, Hero calls $3.90.

      River: ($15.05) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.00, UTG2 calls $3.42.

      Final Pot: $22.47.

      UTG (unknown) limps and the table folds to me in BB with KK, I raise (bigger than usual isoraise since we're OOP) and he re-raises. From my expirince such play (which makes me wanna puke btw) is 90% nuts and 10% random spew but letting KK go preflop vs unknown is just being pussy so I call that accepting the fact I might be behind already.

      I don't think we should lead flop or turn since there is still that small chance he is spewing and on the river I will call anyway. :f_frown:

      Hello Steelbrewer,

      Very hard to fold such a hand preflop. If it would be JJ/QQ it would definitely the thing that we had to consider. But now when there is only hand AA which beats us I don't think that I'd get it away.

      And as played I am not a huge fan of the play actually. But of course it's doable. If we really expect him even to bluff this way then sure this play is doable. But I guess myself I'd just keep it simple and 4bet and get it in. We might still sometimes even see QQ in his limp/raise range.

      We will be playing OOP and therefore it might be the case at some point they might just Check behind which we definitely don't want to.

      Best regards.
