This is a discussion on iPoker: a bunch of blinds defense within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; KK BB vs broken stack who hates to fold 3-bet preflop:
T8s Cold Calling SB vs Broken Stacks BTN and SB giving fair price (mini-raise)
Very aggressive lines? Should I have slow down somewhere or folded one of these spots, preflop or postflop?

The first hand you have KK and raise preflop good.
Villain bets pot 24 you raise to 67. We are crushing most of V's value range and we know V is loose agg. What does raising 2.6x do for us? After we raise the pot is 105 43 to call.
V has all the draws possible. V has Q9 sometimes. Our raise seems to fold out V's Jx and 10x no straight draw hands sometimes. As we see V has all the Qx.
So what range of hands do we get extra value from on this flop when we raise vs calling and getting stacks in later?
The draws are also obvious so we do not have to worry about being tricked by a weird suckout
sometimes you defend .. your blinds .. you don’t learn anything from you, but sometimes you play and take risks and everything goes smoothly and clearly .. but unfortunately there is not much happiness in poker ... I generally noticed that the percentage of successful players is low
