      MP: 118.6 BB
      MP+1: 74.7 BB
      CO: 100 BB
      BTN: 120.6 BB
      SB: 85 BB
      BB: 105.8 BB
      Hero (UTG): 154.5 BB
      UTG+1: 274.1 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has A:spade: J:club:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, MP calls 3 BB, MP+1 raises to 5 BB, fold, fold, SB calls 4.5 BB, fold, Hero calls 2 BB, MP calls 2 BB

      Flop: ($2.10, 4 players) A:diamond: 5:spade: 8:club:
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP checks, MP+1 bets 5 BB, SB calls 5 BB, Hero raises to 26.6 BB, fold, MP+1 calls 21.6 BB, SB calls 21.6 BB

      Turn: ($10.08, 3 players) 4:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 63.8 BB, MP+1 calls 43.1 BB and is all-in, fold

      River: ($18.70, 2 players) 5:diamond:

      I decided to checkraise here, because I wanted to see his action first (his small raise made me suspicious), and also because I would also sometimes try to bluff here, especialy on such a small cbet. Is this line profitable?

      Hi farbwenz,

      I'm assuming we know nothing about villain besides the stack size.

      Considering his small flop cbet I don't mind raising for value but I wouldn't make it as big. I'd make it at most 18-20bb. We want to keep his range as wide as possible, not just Ax (and this board is very dry).

      Even we raise smaller we can still ship the turn if we wanted to.
