      Dealt to Hero K:spade: K:club:

      Hero raises to $1, BTN calls $1, fold, BB calls $0.75

      BB bets $3, Hero raises to $9.25, BTN folds, BB raises to $20.60 (AI), Hero calls $11.35

      Standard broke on that draw heavy board.

      Both opponents are TAGs so they can possibly have sets?

      That guy might be a TAG but I assume he is not great since his stack isn't not loaded to 100BB.

      Against a set You are getting the right odds to b/c with 35% equity.
      I wouldn't be worried to much if BU has a set too and he shoves cause we still have enough equity to call. (37%)
      In rare cases you would be drawing dead if the BU will have a flash with an Ace but in long run it's en EV+ call.

      Brunson plays AA on a monochrome flop when he holds the matching A like a monster. I think you can with KK as well. I'd go broke or double up here as well.

      im going broke on this flop aswell. Shove all-in, clap your hands, fist pump, do the woop woop like homer simpson and yell "gimme gimme gimme all ur chippies"

      and be sure to whine like Phil Hellmuth when your opponent turns over 78 of clubs.

      "78 and this donkey calls me. I'm only playing the nuts and this guy calls me preflop with 8-high! These are the worst players in the world right here."

      Actually, be sure not to do this! There's enough of it in online poker as it is.

      In my experience this is often set/flush/straight, than some overpair that he is bet/shoving, so my line is to call flop, call turn and evaluate river
      don´t think you should get all-in on the flop, since you´re often behind or at best cases flipping
