      Full Tilt - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $71.37
      BTN: $27.92
      SB: $25.00
      Hero (BB): $26.10
      UTG: $25.20

      SB posts SB $0.10, Hero posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has K:heart: K:club:

      fold, CO raises to $0.85, BTN raises to $1.45, fold, Hero raises to $5.30, fold, BTN raises to $27.92 and is all-in, Hero calls $20.80 and is all-in

      Villain is 33/23/3 with 3 3-bet and 33 4-bet so I think call shove is OK?

      Definitely, KK dominates a 3% 3b range and once we made the 4bet (which is indeed correct), we have to pay 83bb in order to win 128, needing 39% equity.

      If he has either AK or QQ in his range, we have 50%, while if he has both we're actually ahead with a ton of dead money.


      I realize that his play seems extremely strong, but unless we have a super reliable read, there is no way we're folding the 2nd best hand here.

      Yeah, I think he can shove in this situations with more than KK+ because it looks like you trying to make a play. I think it's OK to go broke here without some good reads on opponent.
