The check-raise is one of the most powerful moves in poker. Because a player is showing a willingness to challenge someone who has already committed money to the pot, the check-raise signals that he likely has a strong hand. The big risk of going for a check-raise, assuming it is being done with a very good hand, is that the opponent might never bet, thus not allowing for the “raise” part of the check-raise. Because the move is interpreted as a sign of great strength, it can also be used to perform an effective, yet risky, bluff.
Some poker players believe that check-raising someone is somehow unethical because it’s “deceptive” and “tricky”. In fact, in some cardrooms, you’ll find older poker players who will actually get visibly angered when someone check-raises as they might have played in games where check-raising is illegal. The widespread consensus in the poker world is that check-raising is legal, allowed and a major part of the game. All major tournaments and all online poker rooms allow check-raising.
