    I honestly had a strong instinct to fold KK with a large stack in the BB but I ignored it and went with the raise. While trying my best not to be "results orientated" is this the right play despite the historical record. Feel like a donk if I don't play/raise them and always get punked. Should of at least got away from his river bet? What do you reckon?
