      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Don't complete those kind of holdings. You are just putting yourself into trouble more often than into strong made hand. You can't really hit much either with the hand.

      As played
      Postflop: What worse will call you on river? I would definitely just Check/Fold it there and not overplay my bottom 2pairs.

      Best Regards.
