so the zoom and boom hand is KsKc. and i have seen a blog where the hero slow plays on preflop to ensure he makes a flop (only pays post flop)

And a reg who doesn't change his play and raises his KsKc.

So as you win a 100BB for the tourny what do you think is the right way to play it and why.

I've not yet had the black kings (you only pick 'em up once out of every 1326 hands on average) but my plan is to raise pre as normal, but probably just call if there's a raise, as 3-betting tends to have too much fold equity. I really don't like open-limping, as I want to actually win the pot, not let someone hit a big blind special for free.
It's only 100bb anyway, and you can win more than that by playing in a standard manner. If the prize was more like one thousand big blinds, then I'd be much more likely to slowplay. :/

I got KsKc in small blind v big blind so to ensure i got to see the flop I just limped to complete the blinds and then started betting.
