I'm not so sure about that. I mean, I could be wrong about what his range is, and I agree that he's not folding draws or made hands to a small check-raise, but even though it's a pretty coordinated board, he only needs to fold (a little less than) half the time for my check-raise to show a profit. Checking to a reg-type villain on a board like that is basically an open invitation for them to steal, and so I expect that (on average) an opponent like he would bet/fold most of his trash; KQ, KJ, QT, etc. If he's only betting draws and made hands when checked to, I'm obviously losing money by check-raising, but I don't think that's the case - again, on average.
The key here is really that the bluff is cheap and his range is decently wide. In that sense, it's pretty similar to the A8o hand.
