re: Poker & KK preflop w/ lots of action
How much did you and your opponent have in front of you? If you both had around $36 or more (pot sized left after preflop), then I definitely wouldn't shove. I'd probably call and check/fold to a shove if an A or Q flops without a K. Otherwise, I'm coming out firing on the flop. If you shove preflop, he'd be a braindead moron to call with QQ. Then you'd be making a play that can only be called by an equal or dominant hand. In other words, if I'm playing this KK, I'm playing it in a way that can get paid off by QQ.
That is, of course, only if I decide not to fold preflop. A general rule of thumb is that 4th preflop raise or more in NL means KK+. That might go out the window in .1/.25 NL, but the way you're describing the table, it might not. I don't think it's a very big mistake either way.
For the record, I have folded KK preflop twice before (confirmed correct once), so I'm not just talking the talk here . Those were both more extreme cases than this, so I don't fault you for going with it.
