Its been talked to death on the rgp forums, but in our humble Tuesday night SnG it actaully came up... Read the tale of woe:

Now I'll follow up with a fun question from a SNG last night you might recognize.
Blinds are 10/20 everyone has approx 1500 chips. (Basically the first time round the table).
Villian in early position puts in a 4x raise (80).
You look down in middle position and find KK.
You come over the top approx 3x raising to 250.
Everyone folds to villian who moves allin for 1500.
It's 1250 to you, pot is 1780.
Read on villian: made some loopey plays in the past, but no allin in this situation without premium hand.
Do you call with your KK or are you afraid of AA?
Now then lets go the the "famous" version of this question as discussed violently and exhaustively on the rgp group.
It is the first round of the WSOP and you are dealt pocket kings in mid position. You put in a 4xBB raise and as everyone else folds, the SB goes all-in. The WSOP is a $10,000 4 day event and you look up at the clock and your only TWELVE minutes into the tournament. Do you call?
(I spend 4 days discussing my personal answer, so I am very sure its what I would do.) I'll post it as a comment.
