      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:club: , K:heart:
      UTG calls $0.04, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.04, MP3 raises to $0.25, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, UTG calls $0.46, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $2.00, 2 folds.

      Final Pot: $3.06

      I was pretty sure that he had AA and I didnt want to risk. I was pretty sure he or the guyy after me was going to go all- in if I raise. Or should I have pushed?

      Hi timukasr!

      Never ever fold KK preflop on these limits!!! If he has aces: so be it. But you will see many players who will go all-in with AK, AQ, QQ, JJ, TT and even worse hands. And don't make minraises with it (like your raise to $0.50). You should have raised at least to $0.75 and even pushed all-in to a reraise.

      Good luck at the tables!
