      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has K:club: K:spade:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.30, MP raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.90, fold, fold, fold, UTG+1 raises to $8.90 and is all-in, fold, Hero calls $8.00

      Flop: ($18.85, 2 players) T:heart: J:heart: 5:club:

      Turn: ($18.85, 2 players) 3:spade:

      River: ($18.85, 2 players) 4:spade:

      Both guys had a pretty tight 3B range, so I cold called to reevaluate on the flop. I actually thought about folding but that seemed incredibly weak; I'm losing like a mad man KK x AA against known or unknown players. I really don't know what to do. :f_cry: Can I fold KK in a spot like this?

      Hi Boozaf,

      Preflop: We could let go KK in this spot considering that MP only 3-bets 2% in 300 hands. Alternatively you can 4-bet small and fold because a lot of these guys will just call QQ/AK and shove only AA and some KK.
