          Not a lot you can do with KK against AA.

          If you had a read that meant you were sure he had AA, which is difficult to get, then you could maybe call but even then you are committing so much of your stack that that isnt a great play to make.

          You can fold KK pre-flop in some circumstances according to Tyler Frost (one of the trainers here).

            I'm going broke here about 98% of the time. If UTG was a nitty regular and there was no caller, I'd sometimes just flat call to keep his range wide, but when two players are already in the pot, I like 3-betting. I'd probably make the 3-bet at least 25c, because I don't want both of these two deep-stacked players going set-mining, but the sizing is a minor quibble.
            Cold 4-bets are always a bit scary in 2NL full ring games, but villain 2's most likely hand is AK, as there are more combos of that than AA. Villain would have to be an ubernit playing 5/3 with a 0% 3-bet for me to even consider folding KK here. Since 2NL players often woefully overvalue their hands and are incapable of ranging, even given action like this, I think he might even show up with QQ in this spot. Shoving over the 4-bet is the only logical play.
            You'll run into AA fairly often in this spot, and it's just a cooler. If the roles were reversed, villain would be stacking off kings when you have aces.
            Nice hand, unlucky, move on to the next.

            P.S. If you have any stats or reads on your opponents, please provide them with future hand replays, as that info will help the analysers to give advice on hands that involve slightly tougher decisions.
