Default KK

A lot of the time when I get KK in the early levels I end up all-in preflop, so I wanted to ask about this hand where I actually have to play. How's the PF raise? 2/3 good for flop? It's sort of coordinated, but shouldn't fit a hand that limp called...but this is an $11 so I'm also pretty sure it has to. Do I cut myself out of more action by pushing the turn or do I pick up a good sized pot before losing a big one?

I feel ok about pushing here. It just prevents you from making a very difficult decision when you raise 200 and are repopped allin.

The only thing I would say about those rags not "fitting" a limp-call, is that I often see players limp-call with low pocket pairs... Anyway, I do understand what you're saying (also often see AJ or something similar played in this way).

However, considering the possibility of a slowplayed set here, I might consider checking the turn through and then calling pretty much any river bet short of an allin (assuming an ace doesnt fall). But I'd likely just push here.

You could just bet t300 on the turn. Anyone who's paying attention knows that this means you're willing to play for your whole stack but anyone who isn't might pay you off this way.
