      MP1 was 27/9/8 over 82 - fish.
      MP2 was 12/10/6 over 445.

      I opted to call as MP2 made a small raise and I was hoping to play in a pot with a fish.

      Opted to float as his range includes QQ-TT.

      Check behind for pot control. There are very few cards that could help him.

      T helps for a small part of his range. His small bet seems like QQ-JJ.
      I was considering a raise or a call but opted to fold. It is likely he was trying to induce me and I doubt he plays QQ-JJ this way.

      Just fold preflop. Our hand is quite dominated and we are crushed my MP2's range.

      Flop is a little bit close, but he could cbet weaker pairs as well, so I would plan to call here and give up if he continues.

      As played, checking back the turn is fine. We can't really bet for value here.

      I think when he bets the river like this it is a fold. I doubt he bets worse hands in this spot at all.
