      Is my preflop call versus such a loose villain okay?

      I think my raise on the flop was too small, but my 'bad' reasoning was that I didn't want to scare him out since he would have a lot of really bad holdings.
      My bet on the turn might have been too small too, but then I think I was committed to calling the river...

      Preflop calling is fine.

      I prefer raising a little bit more on the flop and shoving the turn.

      As played on the flop, I still prefer shoving the turn.

      The river is very ugly but I don't think we can ever fold here.
