      Always go broke with KK! Even if he has AA (unlikely) you can still dog him sometimes.

      AK try to shove a lot, qq shove a lot, jj shove a lot, some noobs will shove lower pairs too if they put you on AK.
      Since you only need $2.50 to call and win $10, you only need to win with your KK 25% of the time (slightly more to get a profit, and then accounting for rake)

      NEVER fold in that position.

      I believe KK beats AA almost 20% of the time as it is

      Agreed. It becomes tough when you're up against a player who is really nitty and the positions dictate stronger ranges, like if you were UTG instead of CO and villain was playing a ridiculous 3/3 over a decent sample or something like that, but you'll rarely rarely make a mistake by going broke with KK.

      Here it's not even close, BB is pulling what is commonly known as a squeeze on you while you're a steal situation with a likely weak opening range, he could clearly show up with AK/QQ. Put yourself in his shoes with those hands, folding is out of the question and calling out of position doesn't sound too appeal either.


      Hope it helps.
