This is a discussion on Do you think all in KK preflop at nl2 6-max is +EV ? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; These days, nl2 6-max on Pokerstars is very tight. Do you think all in KK preflop is +EV ?
No it's not always +EV. You need to know your opponents better and also know how they perceive you. For example if you're perceived as tight you will get called or bet into with AA or otherwise enjoy collecting the blinds. It's maybe +EV to call all-ins from one and maybe even two loose players.
re: Poker & Do you think all in KK preflop at nl2 6-max is +EV ?
Should u just auto jam kk all in pre every time.. No probably not.
If u did jam it 100k times consectuively would u be profitable? I believe yes. So if your question is yes or no. Yes.
It is +EV.
.....But not necessarily max EV
Likely +EV on any given hand because it's such a strong hand. But I really doubt it's going to be the most +EV play you can make.
Very few folks should be calling your all-in, and so most of the time you'll be just picking up the blinds. Second, to some extent, you've capped your range if someone is paying enough attention. E.g., if villain has , he or she is going to be able to play it more confidently if you haven't gone all-in, since if your starting hand was AA or KK you would've already pushed your stacks in.
Going all-in preflop with KK is +EV. You should only fold them preflop if you saw your opponent in previous hands go all-in with AA only. Since you are only against AA with KK 1 out of 20 times, it is a very profitable move to put all your chips in the middle. It also depends on how deep you are, how the action has been before you, but on nl2 there is no situation that you should throw away kings. If you hear some of the pros they will also say that they almost never folded kings preflop. It is just a cooler. You will lose far more value by folding kings than gaining when you are up against aces.
Yeah I believe 99.9 percent it is the best hand so it will overall be the right move 99.9% of the time then it's off to the races to dodge whatever they got but you can't fold in some cases you can when you are really sure tho they have aces
Semi-grunch, yes it's +EV as has been shown ITT. But just because something is +EV doesn't make it the right play. It will almost always be even greater +EV to raise smaller and 4 bet if given the chance.
