re: Poker & Pocket Kings with action
Is it just me or I raise more than this preflop ? Really, there is a raiser thnn a caller, 12$ doesn't seem like much to me and an overcard doesn't flop a lot, and if we get called, we can safely fold to the A if facing agression. I raise 16 or even 20 even if it semi-commits me to the hand and I push once I get a call on the flop if the board isn't scary (coordinated, A, etc.).
We are 80bb deep and raising more would've laid villain's REALLY wrong odds to set mine. Plus, after one caller, we are never shutting down both guys and still getting action: with KK, I feel we need to get a smuch in there as possible preflop.
