I figured one of the 2 may have Aces, I am not folding Aces here. Its debatable that I should fold KK, but based on stack sizes, I did not read either player as this desperate!!

Please don't ever do this again.

I did go on to cash, but not to win. I think that is the issue here.

Nice fold. I am surprised you don't fold AA there too. Calling would be spew imo.

Dripping with sarcasm. Justified. I folded AJo in the BB once on the bubble also vs. a short-stack shove.

First guy is not pushing with AA with that much behind, he is still in ok shape chip wise and would want to make money on the hand. The second guy took so long to call because he was thinking about the decision and the best way to play it, if he had AA he would instant just call or re-raise. The only time I worry about AA is when someone smooth calls a all in and does not re-raise to isolate. That line is trying to get more action and should be feared.
