$5/10 NLHE. Bought in for $1500, and have not completed an orbit yet, table full of unknowns. Lots of action with at the table so far with LAGgy player two to my right with large stack driving action, largely winning pots getting folds.
UTG+1 open limps for $10. I raise to $50 with KcKs (my first pot played, so I probably have no image at the table). 7 calls around to BB, who raises to $250 (he has me well covered). He is a well-dressed younger man in the 20s. I think this is a pretty obvious squeeze spot for him, and given the table action I've seen so far, I think his range could be wide. UTG folds. I raise to $750. Folds back to BB who shoves -- additional $750 to call.
Questions for discussion:
When he reraises to $250, would you consider calling instead given I will have position PF with a perhaps disguised hand? Is raising to $750 just turning my hand face-up? Is there a stack-size depth where you would almost always call with this hand vs. 4-betting?
As played, would you consider folding at these stakes and at 150 BB to an unknown?
I know it may sound silly on the surface as we have the 2nd best starting hand, need to call $750 to win $2700 (need to be good ~22% of the time). But the 5 bet shove is very polarizing. Also, the fact that you have KK has large card removal impact on his range. If his range is narrowed to QQ, AK, KK, AA, there are now only 8 combinations of AK and 1 tying KK combo, to go with 6 AAs and 6 QQs. I'm not sure though that an unknown is shoving 150BB at these stakes with AK and QQ. In your experience is at $5/10, does a 5bet preflop by an unknown mean that his range should be polarized to really the 6 combos of AAs and the 1 KK? If I'm only against AAs in this situation then we are actually not getting the odds to call (17-18% equity).
At what stack depth would you fold KKs in this spot?
Thanks in advance, appreciate any thoughts.
