      wp, you cant fold KK preflop unless you are very sure your opponent has AA..

      Well we all get lucky like that sometimes..

      You should 4-bet 5$ pf, rather than 7$, because you want that worse hands than AA would also shove.
      I´ve laid down KK pf 3-4 times even at Nl 10 level. Reason for doing that was: all the tables were very tight if I saw 4-bet then it always meant AA or KK.
      Ironically I´m playing right now NL 50 SH tables at Fulltilt and I have no problem shoving with JJ+, AK :D , because players are lot aggressive and they would 4-bet/fold enough or 4 bet/call with TT:D which makes that play profitable.
      Generally it depends on the players, but if you don´t have yet Pokertracker and Pokerace HUD then I wouldn´t suggest laying down KK pf, since all the villains are unknown.
