      I know it was a very bad play. I think it would have been better if I made a C-bet, but I was dealing with a kind of loose player and was afraid to bet when I'm out of position. I know I shouldn't have called on the river, but I thought he had something like JT.

      I think your line is okay until the river actually, where i'd just fold. These suckbet / medium bet usually are more indicative of a player trying to sucker you in than of a someone trying to bluff you.

      Alternatively you can just shove the flop since they're both shorties, your overcards are very often live even if you're behind so you have 25% equity at worse, and sometimes they'll call it off with worse overcards too.

      Either way it's fine in my opinion.

      Hope it helps.
