      You played that one perfect.

      There is no reason to invest your complete stack just to find out if somebody is holding a ace, what probably is the case here.

      And since you're against 2 opponents, you can't cbet so it's a c/f with the overcard on the board.

      Hello midgetjay,

      with kings the only thing that can stop us from betting the flop is A-high board and at least two oponents. I'm afraid we've met both conditions, so sorry, check/fold. (I mead, you played it well, but it's always sad to fold KK)

      Personally, I get frustrated a lot while having to fold kings, but it happens, unfortunately :( . Try not to tilt and stay calm with your A-game.
