This is a discussion on $Freeroll NLHE MTT: Would you have folded KK here? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; Maybe my 3bet was too small?
NL Holdem $0+$0 (150.00BB)
Dealt to Hero: K♠ K♥
Out of position you could iso a little bit larger like 900 chips (6BB), but its not like, your sizing is a huge mistake. It you want to take some hands and size down as an exploit, its certainly AA and KK, since you get so much value from these hands after the flop. Even out of position as here. With KK you are basically just hoping to avoid an A on the flop.
If it was heads-up against UTG, I would be much more inclined to go for a check-call. But here he had CO left to act behind him, and you might also sometimes be checking a strong hand to trap. Just because you missed your C-bet, does not always mean, you are weak (or at least it should not).
Its also bad, that the board is so dry, because it means, there are not really any draws, he can be jamming. If there was a flushdraw and some OESDs on the board, I would be more inclined to lock him up. But on this particular texture and multiway I think, you are looking at a lot of AX, and I dont think, you have enough equity against his range to make the call.
Its so common for people to go on entitlement tilt with big pocket pairs, but when the board is very bad for your hand, you need to adjust and simply accept, what happened. And especially in a freeroll dont level yourself. The guy jams the rest of his stack into two opponents on a dry A high board, so yeah he probably has an A. Not nessesarely a great A, but even if its A2 offsuit, you still have less than 10% equity. So just let him have it and find some better spots to win chips from these likely very weak opponents.
UTG makes a limp-call on the preflop. The probability that he has an ace is very high. The pot exceeds its stack, so catching the top pair will put any player all in here. The KK hand is not very good on such a board. Because if you call and see the best UTG hand, then you only have 2 outs to win.
It depends on the Villain. If that opponent is tight. He probably has the hand he is representing.
The range of a looser player will also contain ace/x. A call UTG is likely to contain an Ace, and loose players love to play A/8+, even if you had made the raise bigger.
Tight fold, but I think correct.
