      Hello,

      I played on table 0,02/0,04€ 9max table, 9 players

      I'm on the button with my stack: app. 6€ KK
      My opponent UTG limps in (0,04€) with AA; stack: 4€ vpip/pfr: 14/4

      other players fold and I raise to 0.20€
      sb and bb fold, UTG reraises to 0.96€
      i go all in and lost app. 100bb

      Now I wonder how many big blinds is worth to go all in with KK?

      That's fine. You could raise a little more pre. Take a note on UTG that he limp-raises AA. It's standard to get it in with KK 100bb deep in most situations.

      Limp/raise or limp/shove from early position (UTG/UTG+1) is AA most of the times, isn't is Veriz?

      Obviously Veriz will have his own opinion on this but l/r from EP is the sign that someone plays badly IMO, so yes you will see AA here but you'll also see QQ/AK and indeed T2o.

      Folding KK 100bb deep is usually (but not always) -EV and we need more info than "limp-shove = AA" to do so.

      Note taking is really useful here and indeed on any villain play which involves do something unusual that involves their whole stack.

      Hello brogac,

      Unfortunately on those limits it will be tough for me to put the opponent on only AA. That's true that we will very often see AA but I am not really planning to fold my KK either. Just ship it and at least take a note.

      Best Regards.
