      Would you play this hand any differently than I did? I don't think folding KK after him going all-in would be the right thing to do?

      Hello Tunatic,

      Your 3bet is way too smallish. Myself I'd consider even doing 4x his raise + 1per Call, so ~$0,60 even. :)

      The problem is that UTG range or even MP2 range can easily be trap-range. What do you think what can be UTG calling range here? What kind of hands of the range you beat?

      Against some opponents that's true we might consider going broke here but against more tighter ones I might even consider folding be safer. Since only reasonable hands we might beat is something like KQ/AQ but is he even able to play them this way or Call preflop?

      Best regards.
