I check because I have bad position. Also, one limper is pretty tight and rates to have a good hand, and the other limper is loose and is likely to call any raise. I want to see a flop here with a hand that can play well shorthanded.

** Dealing Flop ** [ 5, A, J ] Pot =$7

RandomGuy calls [$6].

I call for a couple reason: 1) It's checked to the loose player who under bets the pot here. So I don't think he needs to have a good hand. My Top Pair Top Kicker (TPTK) could well be the best hand here, 2) I could improve with my gutshot, or to a strong two pair

** Dealing Turn ** [ 9 ] pot=$25

RandomGuy folds.
LoosePassive calls [$39.75].

I check because I didn't improve and want to see what my opponents do. When one guy check and the other min-bets, I think they are weak, as many people will not play hands with a 9 in it. So I check-raise. I clearly want them to fold, but I still have 7 outs to a straight with Q/T, and 6 more outs to twopair with K/8.

When he calls my raise I'm not too happy, and I put him on 23xx.

** Dealing River ** [ 2 ] pot = $117
Hero bets [$117.5].

Based on my read, if he has 23xx then his hand is counterfeited and he cannot call here. But to make sure, I bet strongly here to force a fold, so I bet the pot. This needs to work only 50% of the time for it to be EV+.

LoosePassive folds.
Hero does not show cards.
Hero wins $235

Mission accomplished.
