Folding KK preflop: Almost
The hand was from a $20 Re-buy tournament this Saturday on the second hour. blinds were 75-150 I think, MP raised to 399 or something like that (his stack was 30K), I reraise in MP+2 to 1500 with KK, and then the button went all in for 8k, wow, my stack was 12K, back to MP and he went AI instantly for 30K. Yikes (Demontres !!); i took all the time I could, taught button had JJ-QQ or AA, and probably the MP wanted to isolate with something like AK, but the weird first raise may me consider AA. Wow, what to do, I just couldn't fold the KK in a $20 rebuy tournament (even we were on the second hour) and called, MP had AA, button had JJ and that was it, but I almost folded !!!, pretty hard, but sometimes you just have to do it. The only thing for me was AK for MP trying to isolate button thinking I had QQ, but it was just too risky and I had a big stack. What do you think? Do you fold?
