Anyway, to test the waters and make sure no one else had a Ace in their hand, I bet 10 times the BB, everyone folded except for one guy who called.
Have you not answered your own question?
You "Test the waters" someone calls then in a later post you say u did not believe he had an ace? So why ask the question in the first place if u r not going to accept the answer?
I think that sometimes people get carried away with the fact it is a low level buy in. Just because someone pushes with 93o it does not follow that everyone will do the same.
I also do not think u needed to bet 10 times BB. First, the bet should be in relation to the size of the pot, not the blinds after the flop.
So, if u bet 1/4 of the pot here, u find out.
I would have bet, then once I had one caller I would have shut up shop.
Another option in these games with KK is to push all in. You might get a caller with an ace, but u r a 70% fav unless he has AA, obviously.
