      Hero mucked K, K (full house, fives over Kings).
      UTG had A, A (full house, fives over Aces).
      Outcome: UTG won $10.98

      Was so close to folding it on the flop.... but still can't get myself to fold monsters :( (this is the second time now in 2 days I get KK vs AA... 2 BI gone. And to top everything off Stars thinks its funny to deal me KK twice in a row.. first time making 20 cents, second time loosing my BI.)

      You need stats, they make your decisions easier.
      Your KK isnt a monster on that flop, specially since you only bet 3BB pf.
      As played, you arent going to like the turn so go with the hand or fold with a good read. I dont see myself folding here though. Calling a reraise is worst option IMO since its so drawy, so I'd try and go all in on the flop and hopefully beat 77-QQ.

      With your stack size I think you should shove flop.
      Pot is too big to fold KK here.
