      Messy but fine preflop.

      On the flop I'd either check or bet slightly less, being sandwiched doesn't help playing later streets so it's not mandatory to start bloating the pot with 2nd pair.

      Turn is fine and we're lucky villain doesn't just throw in a random bet with whatever or we'd have to fold out of position.

      River looks a bit thin since you're mostly trying to get called by 3rd or 5th/6th pair, I'd probably make it a bit smaller or not bet at all depending on how likely I think villain is to react weirdly to such a bet. Like if he randomly minraises it's gross.

      Hope it helps.
