This hand is obvious for me - push it. But sometimes i meet people who call hand's like this and push it at the floop. Maybe i dont know something :) I can imagine that they want to check over cards, but they can't know that opponent has them...

It's a push all day long he has just happened to hit his ace unlucky. A lot your getting doubled up there

The reason for calling with KK out of such a short stack is balance. You are going to call with a lot of weak hands, and by also calling with KK or AA you become more unpredictable and difficult to play against. You allow the opponent to either bluff or catch up to a second best pair and hang himself. Of course there is nothing wrong with pushing either.

Given the size of your stack it's a push, it's unfortunate that the Villain hit the A. I would never call in this position given your stack size, maybe a call can be made if i play against more experienced players, but for that i would need a better post-flop knowledge, a bigger stack and a good knowledge of my opponents so i do not seem that predictable.

101% profitable long term, don't think about calling here, this is a great spot to double up, you got looked up w A9, great spot just ul that you lose this one, you have 68% equity you are good, don't mind the variance just keep grinding, gg
