My biggest losses tend to come from KK and AA hands gone awry. I wanted to test the Boom replayer so here is a KK gone bad from yesterday.

2NL Zoom vs unknown

Could I have played this one differently, or have I taken a standard line?

That looks like a very standard play to me, and I would have played it the same. SPR on this is about 2 (thanks to Dave on my previous post for reminding me of SPR) and I'm never folding an overpair on a 2 SPR.

According to PokerStove you were about 55% favourite to win that hand. So you got your money in good, you just got unlucky and got drawn out on. Well played though

Totally standard, and optimal I think, no problem at all with the play here. The thing about low spr spots is the prize (the current pot) is already large relative to the remaining money, so taking the risk for it with a strong one pair hand is justified. It should also be so for the opponent so they can be expected to stack in many worse hands here as well like AJ-QJ, QQ, draws, etc.

The one suggestion I have is to set the auto-top off so you don't fall to a 75bb stack in zoom.
