You hugely overestimate the average 5NL players hand reading skills. Plus people checkraise bluff paired boards all the time and there's plenty of draws here. If someone aggressive checkraised me here I'm never folding a jack and may even consider 3betting them if my hand sucks. (not at this stake though).
What people do wrong at the micros is they get a big hand and think:
"Lets make it look like I have a weak hand by checking"
1) Micro NL players aren't paying the slightest bit of attention to what our hand could be and they call way too much which is the leak we should be taking advantage off
2) When the time comes that we do need to balance our play generally we should be betting/raising our weak hands rather than checking/calling our strong hands
