      Hi.

      I think you can fold KK here

      1) You are 130BB deep
      2) I think the chances of either SB or UTG having AA is super high. Of course if SB is really aggro here and so are you, it's possible for UTG to shove AK/QQ here, and thus I would not fold.

      However, if you have average image, I think UTG should definitely be folding AK/QQ here, which means that you are screwed.

      Would need more reads on the best decision though.

      In order to stack off here

      a. SB must be capable of cold 4b bluffing
      b. you must be capable of 3betting very light even vs UTG open raises.

      If not I think it's a fold.

      Of course if UTG is just not very smart and will just shove AK/QQ here all day, then i don't think you can fold KK.
