      CO showed K A and lost (-$20.75 net)

      Sample size 200 hands

      This hand was quite confusing as I don't really understand what was he trying to accomplish as I do have Jx in my range.
      Also I did call because I realized that my hand is quite strong and disguised and that if I would not call with them he would have very easy bluff here. Maybe this is why he is playing like this?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      You never know what they are trying to achieve with it. :D Most likely he rarely plays Jx hands this way whilst he just scares everything away with such a play. Just take a note that he ain't a very good player. :D

      Best Regards.
