      UTG raises to $0.12, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.34, fold, UTG raises to $0.56, Hero ???

      UTG seems to be a "reg"(are there even regs at NL2?), playing 8 tables at 12/9 vpip/pfr.
      Raises very big UTG, but I didnt pay much attention to this and decide to triple his raise.
      His minraise tells me that he is very strong, but from my understanding you always have to go all in with KK preflop vs one opponent if you have the chance. Still... I can't see what we could get value from by pushing here. And calling will get us to a flop with little information, so it is not much better. Chances are we will be sitting pretty with a top pair believing we are good and the money goes in anyway.

      Feels crappy to lay down kings preflop on NL2, but what do I get value from? Even Queens start to shake in their pants when I push all in here. How can I avoid isolating vs AA?
