i started a pso league match some went all in i had a pair of kings pre flop,and someone after me also went all in i was tempted,but folded not wanting to go out this ealy ,and i would have won as both had acees with a lower kicker,would have been a good start ,i ended out about 255,got a couple of hands and wentdown,are the odds against this hand or is it one i should have went with.

Assume they will make this play with any Ace or any pair, you are ahead 62:19:19 so 38% of the time you hit the rail. You'll have to decide if this is within your personal risk:reward tolerance.

With more than one player going all in, I would assume that each had a strong ace or a lower pair than you. With two players shoving with an ace that obviously drops there chances of hitting that 2 outer on you. I could understand it if they were shoving pre-flop in a deep stacked cash game but you just can't throw away KK in that spot.
