Should I really fold KK in situations like these without stats or read on villain based only on soul read? Was up against AA with KK 3times last session, folded KK once pre-flop and was right...

I would call 3b and see a flop.

His range is so crazily narrow that we are behind or chopping vs any decent players' value range.

Yes, but I have no idea if his decent or a total fish, he had been at the table for 2-3 hands, but calling 3bet seems reasonable. Will get Pokertracker soon, will make my life a lot easier I hope

Hi Amigo!

I prefer calling here as well. Although getting it in pre isn't terrible unless you have reads the villain is tight. But like birdayy said, his range should be very narrow and anything more narrow than QQ+/AK starts to put you in a bad place. While villain may 3b wider than this (how much wider is uncertain since he's hitting an UTG raiser), we may fold out the flotsam with a 4b, and be thinning him to too narrow a range. By flatting we can keep these parts of his range are doing real well against in the pot.

Don't worry about if he's a total fish or not... yes if he's a wild fish we could feel great about 4b/getting it in pre, but at the same time, we can get great value post flop from a wild fish anyway when we flat, and can get away from heavy action on an ace high board as well.
