I've been watching the WSOP Main Event live and it's crazy how frequently I've seen KK showdown against AA. Do you think you could ever fold KK? I never could before the flop, I'm making my opponent show me AA.

Folding with KK before the flop is too tight. There is really only one type of situation where you would consider folding KK, and that is when you are on the bubble in a tournament, but have a large stack to outlast others, and someone who has you covered is putthing you allin or if the knocking out of one other player will mean a significant increase in the amount you could win in a tournament. The above goes against the theory that you should be in a tournament to win, and KK is a very strong hand, but financial gain is an argueable point for folding KK PF in a tourney. Cash game, never ever ever PF.
It's easier to fish if you're the one casting the reel.

Fold KK is very difficult, but sometimes the right decision.

Fold KK is very difficult, but sometimes the right decision.In cash fold KK is big leak ( too tight). In MTT I can easy fold KK-AA if I play satelite to big live or online tournament and I ' m guaranted place in pay zone :)

Or for example I played SNG double up 6 max, we left four, I had an average stack and in front of me two equal short stack were push all-in and I am absolutely calm folded KK. To get three prizes and awards are the same. There is no reason to risk it.
