      Nice hand.

      Not sure what you are asking here? Unless you are massively deep it's never a mistake to stack off with KK preflop. And this guy has 40 big blinds!!

      Hi, gambleallin!

      Like MJPerry said, nice hand!

      No reason to slowplay your KK and getting it in preflop will almost never be a mistake unless you start to get much deeper effective stacks than 100BB.

      So well played and keep it up!

      Edit: oh, and please try not to post the results! They may influence the hand evaluation and they shouldn't :P

      Sorry you you've seen my previous post before I edited it. I thought you were talking about the KK on JJx board you posted as well :P

      Anyway, no, I'm never slowplaying there. Slowplaying out of position doesn't make any sense because we can't play profitably out of position! So we have a strong hand = money in the middle.

      But at these limits, not even in position makes sense to slowplay. People will make enough mistakes for you to play optimally - you don't need to induce them to make any mistake at all :P
