      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $5.00
      CO:
      $5.66
      BU (Hero):
      $3.81
      SB:
      $10.98
      BB:
      $2.03
      MP2:
      $1.82


      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB raises to $0.50, BB folds, Hero raises to $1.10, SB raises to $3.37, Hero raises to $3.96, SB calls $0.46.

      Flop: ($7.67) 7, 3, A (2 players)


      Turn: ($7.67) A (2 players)


      River: ($7.67) 5 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $7.67.
      Results follow:

      SB shows four of a kind, aces(A A).
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and kings(K K).

      SB wins with four of a kind, aces(A A).


      According to SHC KK should always be raised. From above shows not all the time. Roughly what percentage should be KK be placed all in pre-flop? Is there a good guide?

      #1- Always play with a full stack unless you are playing SSS or MSS.

      #2- I would never fold KK preflop unless it is against a nit who has VPIP of like 5 and PFR of 4 and you have reads over 1000+ hands that he never goes all-in with worse than AA and you know how he plays AK, QQ and KK.

      It's just bad luck that you ran into AA here and he got quads.

      yeah, KK is good enough 90%+ of the time. don't be result oriented :f_frown:

      you should be a bit extra careful with AK, QQ though

      @NL5 with KK+ you want to get it in 100% pre-flop.

      Unless you have a huge sample a player.

      Also you might consider it if a playerA raises, PlayerB re-raises, PlayerC bets all-in. But again, you would need a good sample on these players and have reads on how they play.
