This is a discussion on $2 NLHE Full Ring: KK vs lead bet on an Aces-paired board. within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Guys after some time I took a break from poker, now I'm again on the work.
Check out this hand please. No HUD's.
Seat 1: Player1
Yes c9h13no3, you are right, I don't have HUD but I take notes. I checked this hand again and I saw I've noted villain as a donk (although in this hand he has 6.10$ stack.....I assume he made a couple of joke things before and got lucky - it's a Zoom table)
Ok, I'm ready for a bit scolding.....
He raises from UTG+1, I 3-bet him from the UTG+2 and he calls back in a full-ring ZOOM table.....If he was a regular I would put him almost in the range you give, but I added to his range AJ, A10 and suited aces up to A8s, A7s....really I've seen joke things in these stakes from the donks.
so the flop comes AA4 two-tone, I already don't like it.....
He checks. Ok, here is my point:
If he has a hand like QQ, JJ, 99 etc why not to make a "one - and - done" information bet to see whether I will call it and make him put me in an Ace. And then fires the lead bet on the turn......
I pitched my KK's (SCOLD ME TO HELL.....)
I don't know, but I didn't like his line. If he checked the turn of course I would fire a bet.
It was pure instinct. I put him in a slowplayed set of aces.....Plus, we were playing with super full stacks. I think if I had called him, I would have lost my stack.
I don't know, I would like and more opinions guys.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE Full Ring: KK vs lead bet on an Aces-paired board.
From my experience he could very likely have an ace. I was playing a freeroll earlier and I had kings, I 3-bet with two callers. Only one ace came on the flop, but I folded to the bet from the big stack. He was a loose player, but had A2 and knocked the other caller out.
As much as we like to think kings are unbeatable, they're only good when there are no aces. I have lost many times to ragged aces from pre-flop play.
In my opinion, you did the right thing. I'm sure others would disagree, but you haven't lost your stack like I have seen so many others do shoving kings with an ace out

Thanks guys for the responses.
I think I probably made the right decision. But I say "probably". It was pure instinct.
