Why? not saying you are wrong, but here was my reasoning. 18/16 was pretty aggressive and steaming, and 3bet pre, so it was very likely he cbets. Then on that kind of board the fish is going to call with all kinds of draws and other things we beat. Then I raise, and (at least most of the time, see below) I think the 18/16 is folding to my c/r, and I get heads up with the fish going to the turn, with a lot more money in the pot than if I had bet out, then play it from there.
But I guess the real question is what kinds of hands the co shoves/calls/folds with to my check raise.
As I noted, when the co shoved I was planning to fold, but the fish calling made me overthink what should have been a pretty easy fold.
