Do you recommend going all-in preflop with QQ KK or AK?

It depends on your stack. If it's small then of course all-in. But if the stack allows you, it's not a sin to play.

In tournaments it depends on your situation, are you deep and have a solid stack you are not overplaying hands like AA, KK, AK if you're up against another big stack. If you think you are ahead make him pay. And you can afford to lose an all-in from smaller stacks.

If you are short it's an easy all-in game.

I think you should not do this) You can be moved and it will be painful

Personally i don't like KK all-in preflop. This hand is too unlucky for me. If someone call me with an ace on hand there almost always hit an ace on the flop or later.
So your Suggestion ist to raise or even call to invite more Players to the flop?

So do you prefer to go all in with QQ rather then with KK? :unsure:

In Cardschat games when only 4 people win, yes all day, I would go all in preflop with those three hands. Sure beats bubbling when my pocket 99's lost to 6 10. Cards on the table popped up 334, then 5, then 2 on the river, to end my 2.5 hours of play with nothing to show for it.

It all depends on the profile of your opponents, previous actions, the phase of the tournament, your stack... there is no precise answer.

Depends on format (Cash / Tournament) also sometimes on ICM pressure. There are rare times where folding AA/KK/QQ is the right play.

But in most standard tournaments early on yes. If someone shoves I would never fold AA/KK/QQ :)

QQ is very vulnerable to overcards, so going allin makes sense. KK is a bit less vulnerableto overcarda, blocks AK so can be slowplayed at times.

AK, is the one to be played aggressively. It has a tough time getting action posflop if there is an Ace or King on board and gets bluffed if there is no Ace or King on board.

it would depend a lot on the position at the table, the amount of chips, the placement in the tournament and the value. but I'm not for it, I'm more than 3bb

I think AK and QQ can be raised pre flop with a call if it's early in a tournament. KK is already an increase looking for a realment. I don't see a fold with KK but I do with QQ or AK depending on the action at the table and the moment in the tournament.

In my experience with QQ, KK and AK, tournaments need to be played all-in in 99 percent of the hands I have these hands in. There are very rare situations in which you can see from the game that the opponent has AA. And sometimes intuition tells you to throw cards into a pass. Poker is a tough game
I thought so several times that my opponent had AA, but it turned out to be 45 :D

It depends on the situation that you’re are , so play safe after flop would be better than rush .

depends on a few things mainly how many people left and stack size, likely to do it with KK and QQ but AK depends

After the flop the All-in looks more threatening than before the flop...

Be sure to go, because if you are lucky you will win, if not, you all played correctly and no one will judge you, how many times I discarded this card, and then regretted when my card came on the river.

When I get KK I go all in but still lose to K7 something like that it’s unreal most of the time

At 100bbs? No way. At 10bb? 100%. As with almost everything in poker...it depends.

Yes. I think it's much better to be as aggressive and i go a lot of times.
