Hi jsguo,

The 4-bet sizing is a bit too small... being out of position here I would tend to make this more like $2.10. The villain's tiny 5-bet is precarious. You didn't give any reads, without any I would go with KK here like you did. If the opponent was tight or nitty, I think in that case we could actually find a fold, as a 10nl nits 5b range is probably exactly AA and nothing else.

Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament. You MUST include #LearnPoker and @PokerStarsPSO in your tweet. Winners will be notified by email every Monday. Good luck!
