I know this might seem crazy, but in some cases I eally don't see my opponents shoving QQ or AKs. When my opponents make this min 5bet, can you still call it a cooler, or is it possible to get away from KK.

If my opponents shove instead of min 5bet, I'm stacking off all day long. But when they mmin 5bet me, I just know they have AA, but can't really find a fold. I felt pretty confident i made the right laydown, but I am just wondering how you guys feel about it. Maybe you can look in your database for when you stacked off KK pe-flop, and see how often you won vs a min 5bet.

Hi Tom,

to be folding KK pre 100bb deep the read for your opponent to just have AA in that spot must be precise. In hand no 2 if you think villain's range is {AA} he actually offers you the correct odds to setmine and call IP. In example 1 this is not the case but I still would not want to fold just for the sheer randomness of such a situation. Opp might just be clicking buttons or still going crazy w/ AK or QQ.

In case you are pretty sure your opponents 3betting range is wider than their stackoff range when you 4bet them you might also want to consider flatting KK against the 3b.
