      Hello Gonchan,

      Preflop: Being against loose players I'd rather just Check and be happy to see a flop. Most likely you will get Called anyways and you wont know where you stand with your hand postflop. If we had less opponents then sure why not to isolate.

      As played
      Postflop: What worse hands do you expect to get paid on river? There ain't that many worse hands. Some even made 2pairs. Therefore I'd rather Check it on river and reevaluate the further actions.

      Best regards.
