Check Raising Short Stacks

In this hand I wanted to crai the shorty on the flop but I got a timing tell when he insta bet reasonably big. I thought he would fire again so I just flat. I decided to crai the turn and the perfect card fell.

Poker Stars $1/$2 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players

BB: $263.63
Hero (UTG): $200.00
UTG+1: $113.94
UTG+2: $90.38
MP1: $85.10
MP2: $210.55
CO: $82.32
BTN: $80.28
SB: $216.93

Pre Flop: ($3.00) Hero is UTG with A of diamonds J of hearts
Hero raises to $6, 1 fold, UTG+2 calls $6, 6 folds

Flop: ($15.00) J of diamonds 6 of diamonds 3 of spades (2 players)
Hero checks, UTG+2 bets $12, Hero calls $12

Turn: ($39.00) A of clubs (2 players)
Hero checks, UTG+2 bets $14, Hero raises to $79, UTG+2 calls $58.38 all in

River: ($183.76) 8 of clubs (2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $183.76
Hero shows A of diamonds J of hearts (two pair, Aces and Jacks)
UTG+2 mucks T of spades A of spades
Hero wins $180.96
(Rake: $2.80)

I find its often good to let the shorties hang themselves as they will be pot committed on the flop.
