      Cake Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - Cake-Poker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Villain's an unknown.

      BB ($5.60)
      UTG ($4.05)
      MP ($4.38)
      CO ($4)
      Button ($2.05)
      Hero (SB) ($9.90)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:heart: , J:club:
      UTG calls $0.10, MP calls $0.10, CO (poster) checks, Button calls $0.10, Hero bets $0.70, 2 folds, MP calls $0.60, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.80) 4:club: , J:spade: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $1, Hero raises to $3, MP calls $2.68 (All-In), Hero calls $0

      Turn: ($8.48) K:diamond: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($8.48) 8:heart: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $8.48


      Despite the fact that it worked this hand, is it advisable to check-raise the flop like that?

      I figured that if I had shown any initial strength on such a dry flop, there was a very good chance that the villain would have folded.

      Had the villain checked behind, I would have led out on the turn.

      Bet more preflop since you are OOP.

      c/r is not good option on the flop since you indicate a real stenght. Either c/c or b/c. I would c-bet half of the pot here to disquise my hand as I would do that almost ever.
