A hand that was probably misplayed

i wasn't paying that much attention to this table as I was trying to 12 table so I admit to probably not playing this hand optimally. I just knew that the pot was big and I had top pair and a gutshot!

Tell me where I went wrong if at all and also hand ranges please.

I don't MIND the 3 bet on the flop, but... Ugh... CO coldcalling for 3 bets on the flop is a dead give away that he is on a heart draw or a straight draw, perhaps a slowplayed JJ or 99. Either way it's gross that he cold called 3.

I check the turn because all those draws just cashed in and we are still behind to perhaps a slow played set. The pot is pretty sweet now, so I don't imagine folding is an option, but I certainly think checking is better than any other line due to the cold call behind us.

I should also check call the river.

I made a post two days ago in small stakes limit about a bad fold I made with top pair. Folding top two in a big pot... You are getting too good of odds to fold without reads.

flop is close I dont mind a fold or CC here
turn should be a c/c and river c/f imo, someone has to have at least a T here
