      I was always questioning myself, would I call allin with KK in the early stage (lets say in first 30min) of some big live tourney, like WSOP or some others with 500+ buyin (travelling a day, get excited with the happening)? Is this must call in order to get fast climbing, double up, or people do fold it and wait for some more sure hands after flop to shove (like sets or better)?

      What is your action?

      well i didnt travel for a day and post a big buy-in so that I could sit around and be blinded out while folding KK. I did it so I could win so I'm calling.

      Snap call all day long.

      Also its a much cooler story to tell if you bust in the first hand minutes than if you just fold every hand for 10 hours and then put your last 10bbs into play with AT vs. someone's pocket sevens and lose. If you bust on the first hand you might even make the TV cut and im sure you will get a lot more attention from hot chicks in the casino. In the second scenario, noone is gonna care.

      how would u end u get 500bb in preflop???like 6-7 betting? do u realy think that some1 will 6-7 bet ai preflop first hand in live MTT 500 bb big with worse then AA?
      its really atrocious play if get broke/play for stacks preflop 500bb deep with KK

      if u decide to 3bet pre, u should just call 4bet and play your hand post not trying to get stacks in,

      so when that said u wont loose more then 100-150bb(=less then 1/3 stack) if run into AA or got unlycky and u can make good folds post too

      No one is talking about 500bb preflop allin, I think your confusing 500+ buyin with 500bb's. I never fold btw.

      If i folded KK, I would push my balls into the muck with the cards, as I am now a big girl!

      This!
      Everything else would be ridiculous. If you seriously think about folding you shouldn't play such a buyin, because you are obv scared of money.
