      Hero usually does not slowplay his big hands. However, possibility that villain hit something was low (you do not call 8BB-bet with 9x). Hero hoped that villain would try to steal the pot. It was not likely that 7 on the turn helped villain. Was therefore check-rasie a good option (Villain could imagine that 7 could not help hero and that hero tried to make a bluff raise)?

      Board is very drawy, villain could hold 9x, straight/flushdraw.
      Bet out on the flop. If he has anything, you can build up bigger pot.
      c/r turn is fine.
      Villain would never think hero would bluffraise turn. Hero line is 100% monster.
