Default &%$!ing KK. I'm just bitching. Ignore me.

I hate KK. It just got royally boned twice in a row. First I was just too stupid to put it down with two aces on the board, then I shot it all in and got called by fricking rockets. Ridiculous.

On the plus side, I just won $2.50 after two and a half hours of MTT

I play KK for the setvalue only, it is too easily beat.

I was in the bubble today as the shortstack with JJ. I went all in and the 2nd chip leader called with A8 and caught his ace on the river.

I guess that has to do with this thread.

Man, just yesterday I went allin in the final table of a MTT with 77 and someone called with 99. Damn bad beat.
And the worst thing is I didnt get a 7 on the flop

But as some sort of an attempt to make this thread not just bitching, do you feel it's fair enough going all-in PF with KK? (This was fairly late in an MTT, I was a little short-stacked.) It's quite a strong favourite against anything besides AA, right?

Defiantely , If you are short stacked late in a MTT I'm all in with KK like a shot . There is only one hand that has you covered and if they have it then fair play to them .

I think the ironic thing is you mostly get KK when someone else has AA

Over the past week I have seen AA v KK v QQ v JJ v 99 , I wonder what the odds are of 5 players at a 10 seat ring game having PP's .
After the hand I thought what a lovely action there would be with a AKQ flop !
3 make trips and one has the nut straight draw , JUICY .
