Default AA vs KK

With 10 people on a table, what are the odds of seeing AA vs KK?

Happened to me 3 times in the last 2 days... and everytime I had to call all-in, and lost.

How do you see it coming? Or is this like hitting a full house and losing to 4 of a kind, where it won't happen often enough to make it +EV to fold?

The odds are 1 in 24, and there is no way to avoid it.

1 in 24 times that you hold KK, one of your opponents has AA, yes. But see it the other way round, 1 in 24 times you have AA, one of your opponents has KK.

Full ring or shorthanded? Full ring I think, correct?

Folding KK preflop is one of the hardest things to do in poker. It depends on the player. If he is a rock and all of the sudden moves all-in after two raises then I am much more likely to fold than if a more aggresive player acted the same way.
