Oh to the question I get no action, maybe if there is a loose maniac.
Saying you get no action with KK is you pretty much admitting you're playing poorly. The object in poker is to extract as much value as you can with your winners, and not to rush in to take down the blinds with a 10xBB bet. If you get raised after you make a 10xBB bet you might worry understandably that they could have aces since you made a huge donkey bet and only someone with a premium pair is likely to want to give you action. The problem here is that you're playing your KK horribly so it seems the only time you get action is when you're dominated. It's your fault that happens because you're playing like a donk.
You should win more than you lose with KK even if you're only getting called by premium hands. The odds of having a pair preflop is about 1/17, the odds of that pair being kings is 1 in 221. The odds of someone having AA at the same time is about 1 in 23 for a table with 10 players. It goes down if there's less than 9 other players. Bottom line your kings are beat less than 5% of the time at a large table and less and .05% if you're heads up. There are a lot of donks out there that overplay AK, AQ, KQ, or even pair of J's.
You obviously should be collecting info on other players but how many people fold QQ preflop? If you feel someone is ultratight, don't get in a raising war with them, try and see the flop. There's always some gamble involved but folding KK's preflop is not a very good play in general no matter what your gut tells
