      Villain is a good TAG. I knew when he reraised me PF I was certainly up against KK/AA, and since I was holding KK I knew the odds were weighted towards AA. I'm quite sure he would have just called me with QQ as I had a decent amount of fold equity. It is always a correct call to go all in even with this knowledge? Thnx :)

      Look, KK+ is usually a no brainer preflop. You just go all in with for 100bb or less =)

      There are expetions though. If you KNOW your opponents range is KK+ in this spot, you can't really call, becasue your equity agaisnt that range is 22% and you're investing $3.14 into a $7.98. 3.14/7.98 = 39%

      22% is far from meeting the requirements for going broke there.

      But remember, you GOTTA be sure his range is KK+ here.
