As mentioned in an other thread, betting on the flop is the preferred option, as check-raise always looks very strong so even if your opponent has a top pair with a good kicker, he's not likely to continue. He can even call 1 or 2 streets with a pocket pair.

Seems to me the villain indeed had a pocket pair and he misread your turn raise as a (semi)bluff. This time around your trap worked, but this is not to be relied upon.
