      do you prefer 3 bet him or push all in if you know he will call ?
      talking about SnG , early stages and you have same stack size.

      3 bet and a call might win the pot on the flop if no A arrive.

      pushing all in and a call might give the A on turn / river (but double your stack)

      So my push was good even though i lost to the A on river.
      It was better then 3 bet , he calls , I raise on flop he fold .

      Thx.

      In general, you want the money in as soon as you can with KK. You don't know what villain holds, you can't say that he has AK. With KK, you want to avoid difficult decisions on a A high flop, also don't want your opponent to pick up a top pair with a draw - it will be hard to make him fold it.

      So anytime you have KK, try to get your money in while you are ahead. Don't worry about villain holding AA, it will happen, and you will loose:D

      You always Push. If a ace shows up? Oh well, move on and try not to tilt.
