$1/2 Bovada Bluffcatching line

Hey guys,

This hand was on anonymous poker on bovada. I didn't have a ton of hands at the table w/ villain and don't use a HUD in these games, but know that villain seemed fairly competent and aggro, probably the most competent villain at this table (note- HH shows HUD stats, but I do not have HUD active while playing. I do track hands for review purposes):

iPoker - $2 PL Hi (6 max) - Omaha Hi - 5 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4:

CO: 212.92 BB (VPIP: 44.30, PFR: 29.11, 3Bet Preflop: 9.38, Hands: 82)
BTN: 10.35 BB (VPIP: 100.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 2)
Hero (SB): 125.23 BB
BB: 99.83 BB (VPIP: 34.69, PFR: 20.41, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 49)
UTG: 48 BB (VPIP: 50.00, PFR: 25.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 4)

Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 3h Ad Kc Ah
fold, CO raises to 3 BB, fold, Hero raises to 10 BB, fold, CO calls 7 BB

Flop : (21 BB, 2 players) 5d 6h 4d
Hero checks, CO bets 13 BB, Hero calls 13 BB

Turn : (47 BB, 2 players) 5c
Hero checks, CO bets 31 BB, Hero calls 31 BB

River : (109 BB, 2 players) Tc
Hero checks, CO bets 54.5 BB, Hero calls 54.5 BB

CO shows Jc 2s 9c As (One Pair, Fives)
(Pre 36%, Flop 15%, Turn 8%)

Hero shows 3h Ad Kc Ah (Two Pair, Aces and Fives)
(Pre 64%, Flop 85%, Turn 93%)

Hero wins 217 BB

So basically, I felt that it was probably likely that villain's range is weighted toward high rundowns and overpairs, and that villain's line here is weighted heavily towards bluffs. I don't think villains preflop range flops a straight OR set all that often, and think that straights probably pot control turn and/or river when board pairs given my x/c line. I decided on the turn that i was going to x/c turn and river almost always as a bluff catch. TBH i have no idea if this play by me is horrendously bad or really good. I'm new to PLO and dabbling in the games at this point, coming from a primarily NLHE MTT background. What are your thoughts on the spot as played?
