      reraise 3-4xbet preflop with the aim of getting an all-in preflop if possible. If he just calls, bet on flop 2/3 pot... the A is a very good card to represent. You can't check on the flop because you need to know where you are at, relative to his cards. Play bet/call on both flop and turn, check/fold river.

      You need to reraise preflop. If he 4bets, go all in. If he calls cbet the flop and fold to a raise. I'd probably 2 barrel the turn as well.

      Basicly problem was... i got some hands on him, and his range was like QQ+ all the time I saw a showdown with him...

      I understand i made mistake not to raise him, tho after flop i was thinking about his range, and too much hands is with A

      If you put your opponent on a range that is only QQ+, AK you still have shove equity here with KK. Always raise it. Players that limp AA/KK often lose massive pots to 2p / str / flush / trips made with rubbish hands.

      I think the only situation you can actually lay down KK PF is where you raise and either get 3-bet then shoved behind you, or shoved at and there is a caller of that shove behind you. Thats about the only time you can give credit for AA being in someone's hand.

      Certainly there is never a reason to cold-call preflop KK. To do so turns your hand into set-value - no set, no bet.

      Preflop: Raise!
      Flop: Bet/Fold to protect from flush and also to check if he has the A.
      Turn: Check/Fold, most likely he has beaten you here if he called you on flop.
