      I would raise preflop. You have position and it's easier to get the money in in case you hit.

      by checking you have no chance to take pot before flop
      you cant c-bet when you miss the flop
      you are playing for much smaller pot when you hit the flop hard
      your hand is easier to read when you suddenly come out betting flop

      My hand isn't too easy to read since in bb i could hold any 2, have TP, trips, 2pair, straightdraw...

      I know it is a standard raise, I've read the charts, done a few twists here and there to adjust it to my postflop play and add some deception. I just wanted to try sth out and in this hand it worked (by chance).

      I like to raise preflop when I know my opponent will fold often, or call the raise and fold often post flop.

      If he is a calling station, then raising small pairs isn't profitable, because you miss too often, and even if they pair a three, they call down.

      So adjust your preflop play to those reads.

      Looks like a calling station, so nice play in this case.

      Agaisnt calling station likely raising is better, simply because you can build bigger pot and he would still miss 2/3 times with his cards, so you should take it down a lot of times postflop.
