Lex Veldhus - folded pocket kings  -1   
The Dutchman, like many other professionals, successfully combines the professional career of the player with live broadcasts of his gaming sessions at Twitch.
Lex leads his streams in a relaxed manner with a bunch of funny moments.
Lex has been showing a good strum for a long time and is charging a lot of prizes right on his broadcasts. In one of the last tournaments $ 55 Daily Marathon for action from the opponents, he threw in the pocket kings pocket.

Folded well because A come in all the time when you have KK QQ JJ. Almost always you lose with KK. If lex veldhuis call all stack gone. Had a good stack and chances for a much better position.

I played well, because the Flop shows him only the chance of the second best hand. Perhaps he must do a higher preflop raise against the opponents or must play verry agressive. Or he had good reads about the other player.

well all I can say is that I had the honor of sitting at one virtual pokerstars table with lex veldhuis or whatever he is called, probably the main reason I remember this because he was the only pro I shared any poker table with, nothing special but still a nice memory for me personally

He has reason to think about and then fol with the chips in.
And having KK doesnt mean you are going to win every all in prefop you get into it.
How many i have lost, usually from A rags Smile
It was a good fold after all Kept him in the game.

well DaCapo71 it seems that someone does not agree with our opinions and we both received a minus vote. I know from my own experience when i playing in pokerstars. I'm just referring to tournaments here. I lost many times when I had KK or QQ, JJ. The rivals call with ace and winning in 90% of cases. Very frustrating but it's the true for me.

The only way you can fold KK pre flop profitably is if you know the player against you most likely has aces. That means you have to know how he plays and has to be a tight player. It's not a play I recommend doing because you may regret folding that later when you're carddead and end up shoving some marginal hand to stay alive.

So, was Lex right to fold the kings?

It depends also on your position, stack etc, when playing in a tournament..
If you have callers that can kick you out of the tournament is not the same decision.
It is much harder to call. But if you can still be in the game after a loss, thats another story Smile

Lex Veldhuis is a good player, he is really Dutch what makes him hungry for profit. He is the kind of guy that still gets totally hyper over a few dollar profit, while he makes thousands. If you have this characteristic it can be futile, because your greed overpowers your reasoning, but not with him. he is even streaming for money, he gets a few dollars for subscriptions so this guy is literately grinding every penny he can get. I hope in the future he can help the planet with his money. GL all! Thumbs Up

This all talk remembered me of an ancient theme people used to chat around here: how to play each hand? And how to play KK? Well, i'm not going to discuss it here right now, but we all know it depends on your position, your stack vs opponents' stack at the moment, how have you seen your opponents play up to that point of the game...

I tried to remember at least one occasion when I threw such cards ..... there were no such cases on my memory .... there were cases when I discarded such cards when an ace or a couple of other cards already lay on the table but in such a position there was never .... I should learn to play of course

Well i have folded kings before, even aces, but it was just before the money,
in tournaments with last places paying good.
Otherwise its an all in with no second thoughts.
And its not once or twice that i have lost with KK or AA all ins just before the money Smile
