      My opponent was playing very tight. I went all in preflop with KK as per the basic strategy I am learning on the beginners big stack course. Is this always the right thing to do even in situations such as this where the opponent was so tight, I suspected the only thing he would take me on with all in was Aa?

      Hello lztom,

      Well, again you only have 18 hands on him and so far he doesn't seem to be tight. Don't talk for the result what you saw him having. :) Standard go broke spot.

      Best Regards.
