  • Kings Preflop


    I had a hand just a second ago.. picked up Kings, I just came back from a break and missed 1,5 blind levels.. the BB was 100 now and my stack was 3400ish.
    I had a real donky splashy player to my left and I raised to 222 and he 3bet to 400.... I really hate this reraise because it is so small, it is either Aces or two broadways.. I shoved he called and showed AA ofcourse. I have no other reads than that he is just always wanting to see a flop and was pretty bluffy and loose with calls.

    My question, since my stack is only 33 bigs is there room to fold KK PFR or on the flop as overpair?

    Hey Sjekkkk The short answer is that, barring very specific and detailed reads, you cannot get away from this hand. Let me suggest an alternative way to play it, between calling out of position and shoving. What about four-betting to 999? Those broadway hands that you think he can do this with will be inclined to either shove or to call, either way continuing in the pot, and we will get much more value. Our opponent also can't call too effectively, putting too much of his stack in before the flop to make a profitable call against our kings. Certainly if we were to call the three-bet it would be to trap primarily, keeping his bluffs and weaker hands in is a side benefit. Its unfortunate you ran into aces, but don't be too deterred umbup: there are definitely ways we can get more money out of his entire range.
