      First off, I wouldn't suggest doing this all of the time, and the specific opponent must be a thinking player otherwise you are going to be facing aces quite a lot.
      If you have been active and you have been open raising lots of pots from C/O or the Button with rundowns suited pair type hands your image for the session may be looser.
      People often miss out on lots of oppurtunities for a double up or atleast a healthy cash infusion by only flatting with KKxx Preflop. Obviously position is important and may be the reason you are getting 3bet in the first place, Peoples 3bet range from the blinds on average will obviously be a lot less if you are raising from the Button or C/O than if you were UTG.
      If you can take advantage of this and play kings as strongly as you play aces in the right spots you will be making a lot of extra $$.

      Wouldn't that be kind of like jumping off a cliff without a parachute hoping for birds to catch you and slow your fall?

      KKxx wouldn't be a good hand to shove with.. KKQJ or similar connected, double-suited hands maybe...but otherwise it's best not to shove preflop, no?

      ur too nitty if u need KKQJ, id say one suited king and like KK108 is plenty good enough, for 1/2 and less then maybe because the play is so weak/tight. For stakes higher than this you need to be able to make this play to help your winrate.
