      UTG raises to $1.50, MP raises to $4, Hero calls $4, 3 folds, UTG raises to $12.50, MP raises to $52.25 and is all-in, Hero :s_o:

      I think this was the first time in years of poker were i think about folding KK preflop.
      What you think? Would you just cold 4bet over the 3bet?

      This is a pretty sticky situation. I think this is a pretty easy laydown with KK though, given that you are deep with UTG. If you had only 100bb this decision would be much closer and I think you could argue for a jam. I think UTG and MP will both stack off QQ+/AK here cos they will assume that you are not strong after coldcalling the 3bet (and discounting KK+ from your range)
