why do you check flop? just bet big like 22cents. You get a massive value from gutshots , flushdraws, worse Ax.
Turn is pretty bad because flush is very possible because multiway pot and it's check/decide for me. Depends on bet size

I think, there are a number of not only line issues but also bet sizing issues in this hand. Preflop there was a poster, but you still only made it 3BB. This is way to small. You should make it at least 4,5BB to thin the field and get that pot growing.
On the flop I would probably just continue to bet against a field of fishy opponents, but your hand was obviously strong enough to check-raise, so its ok to mix in that line as well. However you check mini-raised, which is again leaving a ton of money on the table. You got the bet out of him, so now its time to build that pot. You need to make it at least 40c.
The flush coming in on the turn was obviously not, what you was looking for, so its time to slow down and check-call. As played the river is also a check. If you are going to bet the river, you need to go all in to avoid this situation, where he raise you, and you are getting the sickest price in the world, but at the same time he is never bluffing.
So in short get more money in the pot, while you still have the best hand, and try to lose less, when you have been outdrawn. I would be shocked, if he did not have a flush, as the whole hand played out.
