This is a discussion on preflop allin with KK within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Yesterday I got lucky ??????
I received 3 times KK in late position in (0,2/0,4) cash game and could get 1 opponent to go all in
Yesterday I got lucky ??????
I received 3 times KK in late position in (0,2/0,4) cash game and could get 1 opponent to go all in ( appr 2$ ).
first one had AK and got A on river ...
second one had J10 and got straigth ....
third one had 55 and got Quads ........
What are the odds for preflop KK ?
Are those the same as for AA : 80% ????
then I really got bad luck and lost all my profits of the evening

Odd of winning the hand with KK are less than the odds of winning with AA. Hopefully one of the more knowledgeable members will chime in with the actual odds. I'm not certain how to figure them out.
Unless you're asking about what the odds are of being dealt KK or AA? ! In that case, I can confidently tell you that the odds of one or the other happening are exactly the same.

What is going on with your bet sizing? For example I even saw a hand of yours where you are limping utg with AK! How do you expect to win when you're letting many more players enter a pot. Another time you had AKs and only made it 2x, don't you want maximum value for when you hit? Raise it up there 3-4x, and if someone raised the unopened pot before you 3bet them. As far as AA and KK go you have to play them aggressive and get the villain to put his money in the middle. The earlier the better for you. My personal win rates for AA and KK are both around 85% success.

re: Poker & preflop allin with KK
you are right Torrey.
I've noticed I was sometimes affraid of putting in money in early position.
But I'm studying some strategy theories and changing my game.
Still, when you have a limited BR it's hard to play to the limit of your cash.
So my first priority will be to build a sollid BR by playing micro stake cash games and freerolls.

AA has about 85% equity against ATC and about 81% equity against a standard stacking off range.
KK has about 82% equity against ATC and about 67% equity against a standard stacking off range.
