      Villain was pretty unknown at the moment so part of my call was for the info, but is it worth it/too thin?

      Call on the flop, check behind the turn could mean pot control or draw but the small bet on the river only leaves thin value. Without looking at the spoiler I guess he has Ax

      Hello x3mwisp,

      I will answer your question to either to Check/Raise or not. What are you trying to represent on the river with Check/Raise? You are just making worse to fold and any Ace most likely Calls you. So not really. :D

      At the best we could consider Check/Calling the river if we assume he is capable of bluffing. But more often I assume he will end up there getting thin value from you.

      Best Regards.

      You also have to CB such boards, cause if you stop CBetting in those spots then what are you CBetting and what ain't ya? :D With bluff you would very often do that.

      But that's true that such boards are also vs unknown very good to turn into bluff-catcher right there but then your hand makes really easy to read and in the future to adjust.
