in the pre-flop in my opinion there is no way to fold, already in the post-flop, depending on the draws who have on the board as flush or straight, there is a fold, but it depends on whether you also have a straight or three of a kind

I think it depends on the situation, for example in the early situation of a tournament I overbet to reduce the villain's rank, and postflop it depends on the hands that come out.

It all depends on how far I'm in a tournament, whether I'm already in the prize money or not, if I were close to the money ranks, I would be ready to let go of my hands ... because it would be important to me not to be kicked out before the money phase

Hope it beats the ace he's holding.

I’m usually going to call all in. The exceptions would be if we were very close to the money, and even then I’ll probably call. Sure there’s a change you’re beat but most times you will be the favourite. (last tournament I had KK with 10 bb left so called, he had AQ and I lost but still the right call). Unless I knew the player was super tight then I might fold. Definitely more comfortable with KK than QQ. With QQ, if he has AK then you’d be better if you had smaller pair for straight potential - he still has 2 over cards.

If there is no A card on the table after the flop, I will also go all-in. Before the preflop I always go all-in with QQ or KK.

Poker is skill, strategy, luck and courage, in a situation like this you see who is who. We play to win and the odds are 50 to 50, in my case I pay as with any decent couple.

Depends on the villain, if he is 3betting or 4 betting, his stack Vs mine and the tournament position.
Normally with KK and QQ, there is always a chance the Villain has Ax, so I will lose to 1/3 if suited, 1/4 of the time if off.

Hey Dan,

This depends on a few factors for me
1) How deep are the stacks (if it's less than 40 big blinds i'm usually all in no matter what)
2) What position is my opponent in (if it's an early position battle I'll be more cautious than a late position or button vs blinds confrontation)
3) What type of range do I think my opponent would get it all in with (most opponents will get it all in with a wider range than just KK AA, which is why it's usually safe to get it in)

I always ask myself "could my opponent put all his money in here with a worse hand than I have?" and base my decision off that.

There are a few rare instances where I'm ok with folding these monster hands. Example would be in a live game 300 big blinds deep, or in a pot where 4 people are all in for 100 big blinds. But these are very rare scenarios.

If I'm concerned about that type of situation coming up then I'll often just flat call the open or 3-bet rather than reraising. This pretty much eliminates the possibility of facing and all in bet preflop, and enables me to get more information after the flop to decide if my hand is good or not.

Hope that helps! :D

Preflop this is a must call no matter what the villian has. The flop will dictate any other actions by you

I agree with PLAYFUL1, the sequence of the flop, turn and river is going to dictate whether I will fold or not
