  • Tough spot with KK

    The uploader didnt work so here is the hand history.

    Basically I normally open and my opponent who is LAG (statwise) puts me allin PFR. Usually I fold KK within a heartbeat vs sepcific opponents but when I saw his 3bet 17% and his VPIP 24/17, over 87 hands I thought that my KK could be fine here.

    The hand was played on a zoom table, therefore no specific reads.

    What do you reckon?

    Hi Sj,

    First off the villain 3b% is meaningless over this sample size... you only have 87 hands in total and the sample for how many times the villain could actually 3b preflop is going to be much fewer. For instance 17% is only 2 times out of 12 opportunities, it's really not as wild as 17% over hundreds of opportunities would be.

    That being said, I am never folding KK here. I think we will at least be up against QQ+ and AK in spots like this, and KK crushes that range, so without much more specific reads I'm always comfortable getting this in pre on these stacks.
