Imagine his disappointment. He probably kicked his cat after that hand.
Exactly. I've argued before that you can avoid losing all your money in a set-over-set situation, but not this one. Some PF action might have helped the KK guy figure out that the other guy had a strong hand, but he's still going broke. Seeing that flop, you pretty much have to assume the other guy had QQ, Ax or even AK, so you're way ahead (in your mind) and going broke on the showdown.
funnily enough, I played this exact situation out last night (yes, I had the AA, but with something like 24xBB from each of three players preflop).
The funny thing was that it was the third guy, hold AQ, who was betting the flop and pushing the turn. Me and the poor SOB with the KK were both trying to slow-play it!
