      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, A.
      MP3 posts deadblind, UTG raises to $0.20, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.80, 5 folds, UTG calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($1.85) K, 7, K (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.00, UTG raises to $2.42, Hero raises to $3.50, UTG calls $1.08.

      Turn: ($8.85) 7 (0 players)
      UTG gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($8.85) 9 (0 players)
      UTG gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $7.77.

      Opp - 19/9/1.5 87 hands. Strange minraise from UTG and two kings on the flop made this tough spot, especially after reraise on the flop. Possible to fold on the flop?

      Tough spot.

      I wouldn't have played this hand in the same way, but as played, I would have fold to his reraise flop cause it smells nuts here.

      If you push, sometimes he will show JJ (rare) QQ (possible) and AA (possible). I guess as it's NL10 there's some bluffs (strange hands) on his range, but still i really think you don't have the pot odds with you for a push flop. I prefer fold and keep my 25bb left safe in my pocket.

      So, KK or AK? One cent on KK.

      Hey guys,

      I really think we can never consider folding our Overpair on such a board. The two K on the flop make it less likely that opponent is holding one of them, and on such a board you'll see players getting aggressive with many PPs, FDs and even a 7. I'd go broke with JJ+ for 25bb here.

      Hey neriukasas,

      nice hand, well played!

      Paired board and a villain willing to pay you off when holding AA is teh parteh time. No way to give up AA here, I shove with a smile on my face.

      Regards,
