This is a discussion on Calling an all in bet pre flop? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; I had KK... Villain goes all in... I called... I lost to AA..
Am I OK to call with KK or should I always assume he
I think when you have this hand you can assume that you will win 80 percent of the time. So you should call because the chances of finding a hand that are winning you are much lower than the times you will be in front. that even in the worst of situations when you met AA you still had a chance to turn up your king and make a set and win the hand. I think when that happens it's a hand to forget because you didn't lose your tournament in that specific hand, but in the worst hands that played badly or should not have played at all.
In was playing in a 6 max cash game a few months ago. I had a few thousand hands on a player and he had a 3 bet stat of 0. I had KK and raised, he 3 bet all in, and I *reluctantly* called. He did have AA, and I knew he did, but even then, I couldn't/wouldn't fold.
