K's are the type of hand you can find yourself broke with, or you can take down a pretty good size pot with.

You should definitely raise pre-flop with them (to eliminate opponents with weak A's) to narrow the field.  If you're re-raised, or worse re-raised all-in, it' s nearly impossible to get away from the hand.  However, unless you're 100% certain your opponent has A's, you have to throw your money in and take your chances.

I've lost my fair share of hands with K's, but have won quite a few big pots with them as well.  There's nothing more fulfilling than having them, getting a re-raise from your opponent all-in, you calling, and finding out they have Q's or middle pair.  You got your money in with the best of it, and that's ultimately the objective to be a winning poker player.

KK is a hand that I will bet half of my money on...If an A comes up then I go slow..I am willing to fold KK but it bums me out.  AA is sure better but i'm willing to take a chance on KK.

With kk in a early pos- make a big raise, or flat call the blind and hope to get a raise so u can reraise.

kk in middle pos- plyrs in big raise, no plyrs in 3-3.5x bb raise

kk in late pos- 3-4 x  bb depending on how many plyrs r in.

I slow play alot and have gotten burned a few times, but not as much as you would think.  I tend to increase the bet each time but just enought o try to keep at least one person in.
