there is no mention of the chipstacks, but since it’s the first hand, it means every1 has the same stack. in other words the pot is already 75% of your whole stack. so it is a really easy shove.
especcialy since it’s rebuy, meaning people will play much more loose anyway.
just to be clear here is why not to choose the other options:
a: folding KK, don’t think i should explain that one haha
b: calling, you could choose to trap with this hand, but since the pot is already very high, the odds they call you are almost always good, and if they aren’t they shouldn’t have called or raised in the first place. besides, calling and risking an ace coming on the flop is just a very bad play
c: more or less the same theory as with b. you could commit yourself by raising, but good players will play you anyway because they wouldn’t have called or raised in the first place. and bad players call you down just because they are bad players.
I would Raise. As I read it, it’s late in the hand. The K appears to have triggered a 25% raise by the other player. Likely that person has a K also, so equal hands here–not K trip. But someone might still be slow-playing AA hole cards! so no All-In.
During the re-buy period, players go all in with much less that KK, especially when it’s the very first hand. So why not do it with a stronger hand like KK. You know that everyone will end up calling though, and someone will probably win with 2-5 off LOL. But it’s worth the risk. If you lose you re-buy, and if you win you’re in the lead.
If you go all in you have a good chance of going out, I wouldn’t risk it, I would want to see the flop, if no A is on the flop then I would go all in. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer because either way you play can cost you the game… Doll
with KK i would shove. An A2 will beat you but no one will shovewith an A@ if someone is holding a pair of 2s or any pair and their card comes up you have lost so hands down i shove…and its poker you can lose . but if you isolate the whole table but one chances 80 20 after flop you you win…i like those odds you can rebuy also
The answer is D : Raise all-in. You figure to have the best hand at this stage, and you can expect at least one caller. If you’re unlucky and lose you can always rebuy, and if everyone folds you will get more action next time you pick up a monster.
however i like to add: when you use some deduction, you could also see they are all 3 bad players.
meaning they have an even wider range of hands then usually, and a higher calling probablilty then usually. both improving your +EV
