The key is laying down KK when an ace comes if the player represents it.
From my point of view, when I raise hard pre-flop with KK, people can put me on AK AQ KK AA QQ, etc... so when an ace comes, there is a good chance that Im raising with an ace. So if they represent the ace, then I normally fold unless I can put them on a bluff...
Ive lost a lot of money going all in with KK preflop, but the money that hurts is lost after the flop when you see an ace and keep donating to the pot.
