      NL5, Full ring, Titan Poker

      Villain 2 (10.20$)
      Villain 1 (4.16$)
      Hero ( 4.92$)

      Preflop : Hero dealt K :spade: K :diamond:

      Hero raises to 0.16$, 6 fold, Villain1 calls, SB folds, Villain2 ( BB ) raises to 0.64$, Hero calls, villain1 folds.

      I just called here, because villain is a solid tag and i did not want to find myself going against AA.

      Flop (1.44$) : 4 :heart: 9 :diamond: 3 :heart:
      Villain2 bets 1.44$, Hero folds...

      I really sensed AA here (villain raises and bets very very fast) so I folded. Is it a good fold, or should i have 3bet preflop?

      TAG could play like this with lots of hands, not just AA but also KK, QQ, JJ, AK. I would go broke with KK here :)

      Very hard to laydown KK on NL 5 level. Even if villain is TAG, he would 3-bet with QQ (even if he would just call with JJ, AK)
      On NL 5 level I always would try to get my money in pf. But if you had specific read, then laying down KK can´t be very big mistake, since pot is small.
