      Nope.

      Considering the positions involved there is no way you could, or should, fold KK. Nice hand.

      Consider this hand a tie; no one won or lost really. Next time you'll be the one with AA and he'll have KK so the money only goes back and forth in those types of obvious hands.

      But sometimes the SB will be bluffing, sometimes the weak button will call, sometimes he might be overplaying JJ... THEN you make money.

      By the way, on these limits I'd 3bet bigger. Since you have position, I'd do 3,5x and put an extra for the limper, so more like $0,75 to $0.80. You don't want both of them with great odds to call with 22 and setmine against your cowboys! Other than that, nice hand and keep it up.
