      Full Tilt Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.25/$0.50
      9 players

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is MP2 with K K
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $1.75, Hero raises to $6, 5 folds, MP1 calls.

      Flop: 8 3 8 ($12.75, 2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $9, MP1 raises to $27.5, Hero raises all-in $58.65, MP1 calls all-in $17.95.
      Uncalled bets: $13.2 returned to Hero.

      Turn: 7 ($103.65, 0 player + 2 all-in - Main pot: $103.65)

      River: A ($103.65, 0 player + 2 all-in - Main pot: $103.65)

      Final pot: $103.65

      the villain is quite a fish (30/10, fold 50% of CB), so thinking again about this hand, he might be holding a 8. Should I fold here?

      Well, IMO, it depends.

      If villain is really passive post-flop, then I may think about folding this hand and waiting for a better spot.

      If he is neutral or aggressive, then I'm pushing.

      He's not such a loose raiser pre-flop, so, IMO, although an 8 is a possible holding, it's kinda unlikely. QQ-99 are much more likely I think.

      Hey guys,

      folding KK in this spot would be a big leak. There is no way to fold KK. You re-raised preflop, so you should have narrowed down his range, he should have folded any small pocket. Even if he didn't , you are only beat by Quads, 33 or AA, that's it. If he has another 8 in this spot he made a huge mistake preflop. In 90% percent of the cases you are playing against another overpair. So get your money in!


      Best regards,

      Yeah, Tribun is right. Forget I said anything about folding...

      What I meant was... I'd think about folding and... I'd make the call. :D
