      Hello ragney,

      Preflop: Even isolating is kinda close against that kind of loose player. I might even sometimes just fold it. Although if you think that you can make him fold postflop then it's doable. Just don't really see him folding anyways there that often while they are so bad. :D

      As played
      Postflop: Since he is so bad player, you might even consider betting it on flop, although it's totally fine to Check it as well since we will get his stack anyways on river. Otherwise I'd bet bigger on turn ~$2 and ship the river. Just unlucky and a cooler. :(

      Best regards.
