Default Difficult 2Pair Hand in a 3way pot vs Tag and donkey

Hey guys,
i am a lilībit new to omaha so i just played it "by my own logic".
Please tell me where its flawed and if\where i can play the hand better.

Table image\history :
Utg is a very loose fish and doing lots of strange stuff. This is a mixed game table (PLO and PLH). BB seems to be very reasonable. My image should be aggressive but not wild at all fwiw. I think BB and me do respect each other to some degree.

Hand:
PF: I called in pos. my hand isnt that great, but utg is able to fold, so i figured i can take it away often enough to make up for my hand value beeing so bad.

Flop:
I am aware of 2pair not beeing "the nuts". Nevertheless i wanted to protect my hand. My plan was to get away after any action from BB and call utgīs shove. Thus i didnt raise pot on the flop, since i can save $ vs BB.

Turn: Akward spot, i was confused by both players...my hand could be good, but i dunno...

River seems like an easy fold, right?
Whats my calling range there? Khigh or Qhigh flush also?

I might elect to just fold this preflop. But rest of the hand is standard I think. W/ 3 to the turn I shut down on that turn and river is an obv fold. You beat nothing but air.

I'm gonna check, but folding a King Hi flush would probably be -EV in the long run.

Looks standard. I may call the flop sometimes heads up, and fold to a 2nd barrell on the turn. The good thing about raising the flop is that you might shake BB since you dont want to play this hand deepstacked. The problem with raising the flop is that you are in a bad spot if BB calls, and UTG shoves and will have to fold.

As played I think I bet 75 or so on the turn since the K is a safe card IMO. I would instafold to a checkraise by BB though.

I don't think any decision you made here is bad, but none of them are by any means the only play beside the river fold which is mandatory.

Preflop is fine.

Flop, well, I give serious thought to folding this. I don't like a call or a raise much at all. As played you really need to follow through on the turn.
