      Because he is small stacked, i might could think, that he only plays really good hands, i knew he had a big hand.

      But in this case, only AA have me beat preflop.
      I guess, he would do the same thing with QQ, AK, or smth like that.
      Am i right?? Or could i have fold my KK here after rereraise?


      Thanks for answering

      You did the right thing. You cant really fold KK preflop on these limits.

      Yes, you are absolutly right. Players on these limits put their money with even worse hands in. No way to fold KK.
      You played correct! nh!

      I had the same situation. After the second reraise I was 99% sure I am against AA, but I called and he actually had AA. But never I am going to fold KK preflop anyway. As one pro wrote you lose much more money in long run if you fold than win in cases where you against AA. It is very likely players can play QQ AK or even JJ this way.
