      I'd lead the flop into bad players, since they'll call with any piece pretty much and with our gutshot we don't really mind calling some kind of raise either unless it comes a tight player.

      As played on the turn on one hand MP1 looks very loose and somewhat aggressive so I don't hate a call provided you also call the river as played given the river card and the odds you're getting. That said, he minbet/called the flop and then bombed the turn when 9x got there, quite frankly I think he'll have the straight quite often, so straight up folding might not be the worst idea.

      Hope it helps.
