Preflop I don't 3 bet bc I didn't want to be in a 3 bet multiway pot OOP with marginal aces. This was played on PPPoker, and the opponents were very loose. The only stat available on PPPoker is VPIP, and all opponents had VPIPs of 45% minimum. So I didn't think I would be getting too many folds by 3 betting here. On the flop I lead out for half pot. I thought this sizing was appropriate but I also could have gone smaller due to the dry texture. On the turn I check. Even though the spade brings the flush draw I didn't want to inflate the pot with trip 2's. On the river I check again and it gets checked back. Should I be betting the river in this spot for value after he checks back the turn and the river doesn't change the board?

I think calling the 3 bet is fine given we're heads up and my hand is coordinated with a suit. He could easily have a high pair that a rundown would play well against. It's also possible he 3 bet with a higher rundown type hand though. On the flop I think it's an easy call with the flush draw and BDSD, I have many good turn cards and position. On the turn when he checks it over to me I'm thinking he's got some AAxx or another high pair that is checking the flushing turn and I pot it. I wasn't worried about the paired board bc I don't think he's 3 betting me with many hands having the 3 along with either the 5 or the 9. When he raises it I only had $13.95 left behind so I called it off with the T high flush. My main questions are should I be taking the paired board as more of a threat and should I be playing the T high flush less aggressively on the turn?

Pre flop I should have raised pot and only 3x'd it. On the flop I bet because I don't have many good turn cards and my hand is quite vulnerable. I feel like on this drawy board texture betting may have been a mistake. Once he calls my flop bet on this board I think calling it off on the turn was a pretty big mistake. Honestly I just started playing PLO and just read PLO from scratch. In the book it said not to give up too easily in 3 bet pots and that was running through my head as I called the turn. I played this hand on PPPoker so I don't have any stats on villain and he was an unknown to me. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
