$100 NLH Bounty. 20 of 50 players left. I am probably 15th or 16th in chips. Top 6 cash. Bounties worth $40 each.

800/1600 with 1600 BB ante

SB
BB
Villain 56BB
UTG+1
Hero 27BB
HJ
CO
BTN

UTG moderately loose aggressive villain raises. Been on a mini heater winning four of past five raised hands. Raises again to 8000.

I have KhKc and go all in for 44,500. I believe I represented a moderately tight aggressive image but not a nit.

Villain eventually calls 36,500 with AcJs.

Flop misses all but with two clubs.

Turn and river are clubs and Villain wins with nut flush.

Should I have just Re-raised pre-flop and then hit the flop hard?

Was all in a solid play vs moderately loose player who has me covered?

I think you should have called to see the flop. Indeed, in this situation, your opponent was the aggressor, and your stack allowed you to see the flop to take a more acceptable action.

No luck.
This is a common poker situation, there have always been such situations and there will be many more.
The pocket kings were played correctly, and the opponent with the ace jack also played correctly.
No need to worry about it.

I don't see what option you have here other than to shove.

If you call you won't have enough behind to do anything but shove/fold the flop. You are in awkward spot more often than not then.

The pot is about 10.5bb so taking it down preflop is a great result.

The outcome seems like a garden variety suckout.

Villain seems a bit unhinged.
How long would your tournament life expectancy be if you opened AJo for 8bb and called to shoves [emoji28]
