The two backdoors and the jack is not the reason for a checkraise.The reason is that our read says that the bad player doesn't have a hand and that the good player is put in a difficult spot with at least 40-45% of his range.
We are banking on two folds before the end of the turn which I guess we have to succeed with around 30 % of the times without considering our equity.
But the equity of the backdoors and the possible pair outs makes our hand a
little more than a pure bluff.
I probably fold this hand 4 out of 5 times but I don't think it is horrible to checkraise so I just didn't share your opinion that it always is a fold.
I consider myself to be a TAG playing 30/20 5 and 6 handed and I would really hate to be checkraised here with my 23% HJ range if I was in MP:s shoes.
