I like check-raising this hand for a number of reasons: I don’t want to give free cards to random overs, I have blockers to the hands that have me in really bad shape (63, 53, 43), and I can plausibly get action from any sort of Ax that thinks it has two overs and a gutshot but actually has just 5 outs against me. I certainly intended to call a turn shove, but when he didn’t shove, I was sure he was drawing. I check-snapped the river expecting to see Ax, but this works too.
