      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Preflop: It's even pretty ugly to raise such a short-stack when he is as well pretty loose players. I might just limp in and play postflop. But definitely the isolation raise is doable against MP3.

      As played
      Postflop: While he is a bit looser side then you could as well consider shoving but the problem is that few draws completed and he might already have a better hand. Therefore I might just bet a bit smaller like $0,7 and Check/Fold such a river because I don't really expect him to bet anyways with worse.

      Best regards.
