I think it all depends on the type of players at the table.  If you only call, then you probably are going to need to hit something to win the pot.

A K is one of the best hands thatI ever held I would call except all in with a small stack.

Yes I would call araise and most likely only get away from the hand if I raise, it is then reraised, and third player reraises again. You're now up against AA or KK and should lay it down.

Big slick is way over rated.As you say it can be beaten by a pair of dueces. I might do a raise with it if it is suited but I wouldnt go all in with it unless short stacked and ready to blind out!

Pocket AA everyone's favorite, and everyone expects them to win every time so everyone goes all in with them all the time...

The most I have ever made on Pocket AA is when I flopped AA with them...  I had not raised before the flop so no one suspected what was about to happen...

There were 5 hands in and the rest of the cards were K Q J not in that order...

When I checked everyone bet a little and I never raised until after the river always checking to them and calling...

Everyone was still in when I moved all my chips in...  3 of the remaining 4 called my all in...

If you dont hit and you think someone else has two pair or better, then you fold it just like it was a 2 3 o

That is the way that I play them...

You are a slight preflop underdog even to small pocket pairs so you have to be careful with your post flop play if you don't hit your hand. But its still not a hand that I am going to throw away too often preflop unless I am convinced that someone has pocket aces or pocket kings.

I agree it really depends on the table that your playing at.  If the guy who raised is a really conservative player than you may want to fold or call but if the guy is a loose player than you probably want to put him all-in because your mind tells you that you got the better hand and you probably do.

at the right time, raise a little if you dont flop a ace or king.
