Folding Cowboys preflop
I was discussing a situation with a friend and I'd like to know what you would say about it: he was doing quite bad in a 2 - 2 No Limit game at ACF (Paris, France) and at some point he got dealt KK under the gun. He decided to fold his hand preflop and he gave me the following explanation: he was running really bad lately and his stack was really short compared to the others' (full ring, 10 people). He thought that going all in here (he just had 10 times the big blind) wouldn't scare people away and would lead too many people in the pot (the table was really loose), especially after the many hands he's played and lost.
Does that really make sense to someone?

wtf. easiest shove ever........

if he is running bad maybe raise to 10 and fold to a reraise cos they must have aces or a hand that is gonna suck out on him

Okay, that was my first thought... I told him it was insane... But imagine just a second that 10 people are in the pot and everyone just checks it to the end... What are the odds of him having the best hand eventually? I'm not saying he was right or anything, I'd just like to know statistically speaking what were the odds of that happening...

im pretty sure he can limp here for set value (also KK can make a straight with a 9TJQ board remember), but i agree that if there is a raise behind him he has to fold.
