Default Re: DJ Sensai hand. KK on 785 board. In position? Raise or call?

I think calling almost makes your hand look stronger because it shows your hand prob has decent showdown value but you're trying to exercise pot control. I rarely see an utg player call a leadout on a flop bet with AK, but I often see him raise a flop lead with AK (im not sure if this really makes sense, it does to me though). Plus if you're not raising here at least sometimes then no one will ever believe you when you make this play with 2 overcards. Somtimes you will run into a set or whacky 2 pair but thats where reads become the defining point in the hand. I think theres many reasons to be raising this flop, just not all the time. ill stop rambling now....
