re: Poker & $25 NLHE 6-max: KK facing pf 5bet 150bb deep
Interesting this thread has sparked a pretty lively discussion now, a couple weeks after the fact.
I 6-bet shoved, he turned up aces which held.
I agree that 16 hands isn't nearly enough, and that it's possible for villain to do this with QQ+/AK. In my experience though, I would say the probability of QQ is less likely than KK+, and it's 50/50 on AK whether unknown 5-bets it/gets it in or folds/flats.
In retrospect, in Rush, shoving KK in this spot is probably close to ev neutral IMO.
Now I wonder, at what stack size do you think it starts to become highly -ev vs. a relative unknown with no signs of spew? 200bb+? 300bb+?
