      He was pretty tag, so with his 3-bet, so he had AK or QQ+, almost for sure... I had position, so I just called the 3bet, because I knew that low pp were out of question. Did I play it bad the pf? And the flop?

      2 people did this to me last night and both of them hit a K on the flop and I hated their guts.

      Anyway bad beats aside, if you're planning to shove on the flop like that might as well shove pre-flop since the flop changed nothing. AA still beats you and you still beat AK, QQ. I still feel that you should shove KK pre-flop as out of all the times you get KK its very less likely that an opponent has the only better hand, AA. I think this happens less than 5% on a FR table.

      Besides he's a TAG not a nit. Nits are the one who you can re-consider playing KK if you strongly feel he only 3-Bets with AA.

      Calling 3-Bet with KK I think is a bad move as if you wanna be completely sure that you shove on flop only if you hit a K then you're kinda set mining and you're not following the Call 20 rule. Like I said the flop won't change anything only a K will make you feel at ease and an A on the flop might even make you fold to a C-Bet from QQ. Shove it pre-flop or just fold it if you're not comfortable and pretty sure he has AA.

      I think pf call is fine, I would also shove flop, since likely you´re behind there only against AA and worse pp-s would call your shove

      best regards,
