3 folds, Hero raises to $1.5, CO calls $1.50, 2 folds, BB raises to $3, Hero raises to $8, CO calls $6.50, BB raises to $43.5


The guy raising all in has only been at the table for about 10 hands so I don't really have a read on him. Would you even consider laying this down and giving the guy credit for aces?

What would you have raised it to?


$12-$15 I dont want to give the other guy odds to call, I want to play KK heads up if possible. I really dont want to play KK in a 3 way pot, obviously guy likes his hand if he is raising into you.

I think it's safe to say that %99 of the time you should be stacking with KK PF at a ring table. The only times I'm ever considering folding (fwiw, I never have preflop) are when we're sitting on much deeper stacks (~200BB+) and/or against a nit.

I call here all day long.

Final Pot: $114.20

The guy that moved all in had pocket Aces, and the other guy had pocket jacks.
So I majorly sucked out on the one guy and kind of felt like an idiot for doing it, I just wanted to see if you guys might have even considered laying it down. I don't feel so bad now. :p

As Chuck said the only time I would consider folding KK pf is if were deep stacked with villain, even then I would need a serious read of him to do that. Getting it all in here is pretty standard, NH.

Since it was a cash game I would have called. If it was a tourney I would have though more deeply about it.

your 4bet is a bit small like prior posters said

you can make it around 11 or so minimum, but i would prefer making it about 15 since it's multiway - also that size sets up a pot sized push on the flop

try and think about stack sizes on later sts.... i.e. if you leave yourself w $32 w a $26 flop stack sizes get weird...
