      I assume MP2 is a giant fish looking at his stats.

      This is how I would play the hand vs such a fish:

      Raise flop to 3.5$

      Bet turn 80% pot

      Shove river.

      Its not that easy as you think, If I bet big I can win big pot or very small because he will fold, so I go rather the middle way.

      I protect against good players more that against fish

      Shoving river is bad.
      Every 7 or Q would complete straight
      Bet turn at least 6$ to protect your hand and get value drawing hands.

      Shoving only when following my bet pattern on flop/turn obviously. Would make pot after turn 24-25$ with 12$ left for villain. -> shove river for 12$ to get max value from 2pair hands/lower sets.

      Although villain has left here 12$, I think shoving is bad, since often enough he would bet here value with straight instead of two pair.
