Does a better player fold this hand here? If so, what kings do you call with? and what aces?

IMO that's a pretty awful preflop call, unless you catch your miracle flop there really isn't a whole lot of flops that you will like and then you always have to worry about domination. I would much rather 75o than 65o in your position. As far as your question I would probably go KTo+, and A8o+.

I like a call A LOT better if CO and SB fold. Them calling ahead of you makes this a super-easy fold.

This should be an easy PF fold. Just because you are getting good odds on your money does not mean you are likely to be totally dominated and need a miracle flop to be able to continue or win.

As the other poster said, a hand like 810 or some small suited or even connected cards are much better to call with.. if you miss you dump, when you hit, you will win a big pot usually. Small-medium suited or just connected cards here will do much better than a big broadway with no kicker.
