The only thing that I'm doing different is C/R all-in. There is really no reason to only C/R to 300. If he comes back over the top, you're not folding anyway. Just put a little more pressure on his decision.

I don't think the all-in check raise matters at all. It's either call or fold for him. You're showing strength with any C/R, so the amount you raise in an 800 chip game doesn't matter. He's not laying that down.

I go broke here too often

FWIW, I don't play Kings the way button did, I hate giving infinite odds for villain to hit his ace.

On the other hand, if you think you have an overaggressive villain who will fire repeated shots here with AQ but laydown if you make a move, this is a great way to extract with KK. It's hard to look at some of these things in a vacuum.

I read an old post by William (I think) that was not related to this situation, but applies. He said something like, "no matter how diabolical your plan, an ace always has outs." My point is, I think trapping with KK against an ace has too many drawbacks. If you're playing against an overaggressive villain whose minimal faults include overplaying AQ, I think you should choose a higher vpiper than this guy to do this with.

I see what you're saying. I just prefer a different approach in these 800 chip games.

You are obviously doomed once that flop comes. I dont raise it preflop but thats just me.

[/ QUOTE ]

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Would you call the pre-flop raise a mistake?

[/ QUOTE ]

No I wouldn't, just doesnt mesh with my style in the $33s.

When's the last time you used any kind $33 style? I wouldn't think you'd remember what a $33 table looked like.
