What are your thoughts on this play? Are you laying this down are you re raising again or just calling? Any input is welcome. Thanks

Call and checkraise him a nice amount on any non-A or 2 turn since he probably has aces and/or is a moron. If he has a set, tough, you're still at least calling down.

I'm probably pushing all in here.

#1 don't limp in w/ KTo - especially when the pot is already opened - especially this early in tourney (9seated,L1).

#2 all-the-way-in! cuz, you see...MP1 made the same mistake - limped in w/ KQ/KJ...something like that. maybe he's open-ended. pocket T's or K's he would have raised PF (besides you holding on of each yourself). 22 is the only hand that has you.

let it rip. hope he doesn't turn over a 22....make a promise to yourself not to play these hands anymore.

I did push in here and yes you guessed it he turned over 22. I basically wanted to know before saying if pushing was the right move. Thanks

Nothing you can do about that one.

Folding KTo preflop is probably the right play. Tough hand to play likely 5-handed. Still, top two pair is top two pair. You'll probably see K5 as 22. No way you put him on a set, and you lose your stack here, otherwise, weak-tightness has set in.

I guess take KTo out of hands to play from the button then? What if I have KTs is the right play to fold here on the button as well? Thanks
