Subject: Fighter pilots and folding KK preflop
I laugh when someone posts about folding KK before the flop. The
opponent in the story always shows the Aces, and the person making the
post thinks they look really cool. Has anyone ever made a post about
folding Kings preflop that didn't include the opponent flipping up
aces? Of course not. Telling people you folded Kings preflop marks you
as a loser, you need to include the 'opponent flipping aces' to save
you from a torrent of well deserved ridicule.
Even if this KK/AA situation came up I wouldn't post to RGP about it.
It's like fighter pilot in a bar trying to pick up women... if he says
he's a fighter pilot he knows the women will think he's a lying
tosser, a real fighter pilot would understand this and not bring it
up. Just as a person who really folds KK before the flop (followed by
the opponent flip) would not post to RGP about it, because he knows he
would look like a lying tosser.

Got KK twice on line last night as it happens. Played them both. One v
AA and the other one v Js9s and AQos.

Both lost with pre flop all ins.

J9 won incidentally.....my set on the turn gave him the straight.

Just to show how cool I am in a contrarian way, I will now post a true
story about folding KK preflop where I was *not* up against AA.

I still consider myself something of a novice, although I've been
quite successful working my way up through the microstakes levels.
When I first started playing, I was doing 5 cent games then 10 cent
games. I'm not on 20 or 25 cents, depending on which site I'm
playing at.

Back when I was on the 10 cent tables, I picked up KK in the SB. There
was a limper from EP, followed by a raise. Another player reraised,
and there was another reraise behind him. I'm sitting there with KK,
and I'm thinking with a limper, a raise and 2 reraises, someone has to
have aces. I fold.

WRONG!!!! It turns out that the best hand was JJ. The last raiser
put in his 5-bet with *AQ suited*!!!!

That may have been the worst poker play I've ever seen. Of course,
the other three players called. I don't even remember what the
winning hand was.

You know somthing? Most of us already know that 'Irish' Mike is a lying
tosser, among other things. Nothing new there, move along.

PS. I wonder how much our resident jerk would rant is some other
Amercians were to call themselves 'Indian' Singh, 'Japanese' Isumoto or
'Chinese' Ming.

murray.john81@gmail.com, my dear, dear friend, there was this time, oh,
12/19/2008 12:54 AM or thereabouts, when you let the following craziness

That doesn't make any sense. Everyone knows KK is a favorite over big
slick (AA).
