  • Drop KK Pre-flop?

    Sooo... The more I look at this, the more I think my play was ok, villain 7 was TAG but overvalued big aces pre-flop, villain 9 was TAG, and villain 3 was playing his first hand at the table, no history. Is there another way I should have played this?

    Villain 3 bought in for $3.09? If it's his first hand at the table then he must have, I'd take this as a probable fish indicator for a read (it's such a odd buy in amount, it's probably his entire bankroll). And he's probably ready to gamble it. So his cold call of the 3b wouldn't concern me in the least.

    V7 obviously doesn't concern me, his range is pretty heavy in pocket pairs that aren't AA and big aces. V8 is the only one who can realistically show up with AA here but he's generally 3-betting a range that includes many worse hands... value hands like AK and QQ/JJ, and maybe a few resteal type hands as well.

    Given the level of interest shown by V3, and the fact that V8 is likely stacking off his entire value range, I like 4-bet jamming KK here. We should be in great equity shape against their ranges.

    As for the title of this post, please don't fold KK preflop in a spot like this. Unlucky to get coolered running into aces here, but you will usually be the one doing the coolering when you run into AK, QQ, or JJ.
