It really depends on circumstances and playing format. The more BB you have, you should be less willing to go all-in, both pre-flop and post-flop (of course, another story is if you have nuts on the flop like top set and you know your opponent is calling station). But if you just sat down at poker table, and some player goes all-in for 200+ BB, I would really ponder if my queens are good enough, included KK. That does not matter so much in cash game rather than early stage of tournament. I have experienced spots in cash game, when TAG pushed all-in and I have QQ. I had folded and he showed me AA, so it also depends on the identity/playing style of the opponents. Also, once I had pocket KK in early stage of bigger tournament with 100+ BB and Big blind showed on me (he has me covered). I took long thinking and called - he had AA (sad story for me :angel:). Good poker player needs to learn how to filtrate and evaluate these situations regarding opponent´s style, stack size etc.
The answer is not usually clear.
Hello. I am curious to see what you do when this happens to you, both pre-flop and flop. Anxious to see your answer. Thank you.

Hi.
Pre-Flop, I am going ALL IN, but it's depends of situation, and how many players press the same button, but at the flop you should think it's depends of your stack size, and position, and with who you want to go all in.

I would have to take a little time and think it through. How much of my stack is at risk? How has villain been playing to this point? What point in the game I am at? I would try to make a careful play either way if I call or not!:D:D

Depends on the size of the bank. If my bank is 3 times more then I bet all in

Call it of course..I come to gamble and don't show up to play hopefully catching 7 2 off suit. Im here to win and take money if given the opportunity. It might matter if your close to money but uts all about the situation too. Good luck and crush it.

What kind of weird question this is... Obviously I am jumping from happiness and snap calling anything <200bb deep, and probably +200bb as well, with KK definitely and against most players and positions often QQ as well... Unless multiple people go allin before you, and you are super deep,then you can fold QQ's optimally in my opinion. Also if you are above the bubble spot in a satellite and have big enough stack, you can just go ahead and fold both of them preflop, but really not much other exceptions.

it all depends whether it is a cash game or a tournament, but QQ can be ridden A KK is a professional risk, but I often check with this card

Folding KK is much more difficult than QQ - especially against a villain who risks all of his chips preflop with 77+ or AT + or A8s +. It often depends on the player and also on the buy-in level. In low levels where many players outplay suited cards, connectors or ace rags, I rarely fold the 3 highest pairs. But if I have a very tight player at the table who raises very rarely anyway and then plays a 3-bet, it is very likely that he will hold AA - in such cases I will fold QQ and KK - especially if I have gone far am in the tournament. :)

A lot of factors determine, if it is a cash game, how deep, or short you are. Also, if it is a tournament, how early, or late in the tourney it is, and how many blinds you have

I pay, and I pray that I don't become AA, KK or three of a kind.
This decision is very difficult, but I always pay.
