It sounds like you might be overfolding too many spots against this player. We don't need the nuts to get it in just higher equity spots than our opponent. I'd consider 3bet isolating him as much as possible as we want to get him hu as much as we can.
IP we want to 3bet smooth hand distribution (these are hands that flop big and give us easy post decisions). Examples would be big rundowns (KQJ9ss, QJT8ds, 89TJrr), big Aces (ss and ds), 6789ds+.
OOP (sb preferably) all Asbbx, big aces (again suited over connected side cards) and again big rundowns. Usually we want to tighten up our sb 3bets w/ Asbbx vs ep/mp but vs someone w/ this wide of an open range I think it's fine to do all Asbbx.
Also I'd avoid cold calling oop as much as possible if they're this aggressive.
If I can also recommend downloading Equilab Omaha (free download and tool from pokerstrategy.com). Running opp ranges and all in spots w/ this tool helps build confidence with both all in spots as well as postflop play in general.

I'v been playing around with both flatting and 3betting disconnected low double pairs. To my knowledge (and please correct me if I'm wrong) given gto ranges we're only 3betting 20% of our ds vs late position. I've been flatting btn only and 3betting all double pairs (ds, ss and rr) from all other spots to get hu. My thought process is flatting, even ip, can get me into "fake" coolers multiway.
Guess my main question is , at micro where you're playing more multiway, would it be higher EV to 3b get these hu or flat ipp especially btn? Not so much worried how playing these affects either of my range given population isn't paying too much attention. Thanks!

My opinion micro is all about max exploitation. Since you're exploiting opponent's poor ranges and overplaying marginal hands/draws I like to lead as much as possible even if I'm probably not getting action in some spots such as yours.
I'd consider x/ing back if you have stats/reads opponent's have high turn probe freqs or barrel freqs but at these limits they're usually more passive.

Think this is a pretty clear x/fold honestly. Your hand has very poor play ability and blocker effects to start leading here and you more want to x/raise nutted blockers/draws and nutted hands (top set, middle set +bdfd etc). If called by btn you're also going to have to do a lot of x/folding given dynamic of flop. There's more bad turns than good for your hand.
Regarding opponents I've found players w/ high vpips who limp call a lot aren't thinking in ranges and are only playing their hands. For this reason (also fact you're multiway) I'd focus more on your hand than perceived range.
Even if, best case scenario, only sb gets it in and btn folds you're still not doing amazing vs hands they'd chose to get it in w/.
SB Spr is 1.3 which only needs about 35% equity I believe.
You have about 40% equity vs bare wrap (best case scenario).
8% vs bare sets
and 27% vs QQ/KK +FD which is very likely in sb range.

I think w/ enough volume you can make money even at the lowest stakes offered. With that said I believe it's also very important to ask is this worth my time? Using any form of play to learn and improve/develop solid foundation as well as tools is never a waste but speaking strictly from an hourly perspective is different. Personally w/ the right sites you can make decent money to start building at PLO25. Lower than that is very difficult imo.
Also to get a good understanding of how your BB/100 reflects your play you need a lot of hands (depending on stakes closer to 90k-120k I'd expect).

I like the check back, especially blocking the 9 and T. You really only deny on turn from 78/lower wrap and maybe J8. SB range has enough QQJx/ JJQx as well. Also agree at these stakes not enough are turning combos into bluffs imo.
I'd check , make my life easy and hope to pick up a random river stab.
