You were 72.15% favourite, you just got unlucky. The 27.85% played.

You got in a big favorite pre flop so you did right thing, poker is all percentages (unless its stars grrrr) and will win 3 out of 4 in that situation.


I'm confused

I'm afraid I don't understand the survey.

Are you asking was it right to mini-bet with KK? Call an all-in with KK? or get all your money in preflop as the favorite?

My answers No, Yes, Yes.

I hate mini-bets as a general rule and villian would have been in the pot no matter what was bet anyway.

There really never was a decision in this hand.

it was wrong to min bet preflop Kings cause you could have ended up against 3 or 4 players to the flop( including the blinds that are already invested; and many players tend to protect the blinds no matter what hole cards). But all in all you ended up going heads up to the flop against one opponent with a dominant hand, and thats all you want to do in poker. So worng path but correct destination. Runner-runner sucks doesn't it?

The fact that it was runner runner doesn't matter. When the money went in, you were roughly 3:1. However that 3:1 happens doesn't matter.

Looking at that loss as runner runner will only make you even more tilted when you lose :p
