$Freeroll NLHE MTT: 3-handed , KK on Button vs Aggressive SB
This is CC tonight's freeroll , me with two no cardchatters/pw thieves , 3 handed , on the SB the Big stack is loose aggressive , always raising/shoving , on the BB villain is weak , is waiting for the big hand , calling when he's sb trying to steal blinds from me , if I survive this hand I have second position ($14) for sure or risk it for the first ($19) or less (3rd=10$) ?
He hasn't call any shoves I've made , I raise (rarily) preflop he (SB, the big stack) usually folds , once I raised x2only , he reraised I fold , now I bet x4 to repel his aggression ,as if I didn't want to play at all the kings , he reraises my bet , I have a bad feeling , he dared raising x10bb..... is this correct/right , should I have bet less ?, should I have called to his 3bet to see the flop or the shove was correct ...should I have retreated to his aggression ??? Do you fold KK sometimes on such a position being afraid that the other has AA or Ax ready for shove it to pair it on the board ????
I would not have shoved I would clicked it back with a 4 bet to give him a chance to stick all in.
I think KK is too big of a hand and your opponent is too aggressive to play cautiously and wait on the short stacked BB to bust.
The short stack has about 13 BB which is still somewhat reasonable. If he had around 5 or less I would throw caution.

If you just call or shove the result will be the same.
You get a coller, it happnes, GG.
I will never flat a KK on 3 handed, the vilain will 3bet you a lot, because of his stack and your stack, tha is the chance of you be the chip leader, too bad he has the AA, but in long time you will win a lot of this hands.

re: Poker & $Freeroll NLHE MTT: 3-handed , KK on Button vs Aggressive SB
Well , to tell the truth , now that I re-think it I regret for shoving , I guess I should have played it more passivelly and fold it , although most of you said it was a couler , the payout for the second was very good , the third one was ready to go/blinded out almost (couldn't play good) , so after his departure and the 4$ in my pocket , I would be able to play Heads Up with the loose guy . Maybe this strategy could be the right even on a real buyin tournament , I guess...
Thanks guys for your opinions

Can't do much 3 handed... Even if you min 4b to 94k and then he shoves, you're beating everything he could conceivably have (JJ+, AK) except AA.
