MP: 218 BB (VPIP: 28.04, PFR: 20.56, 3Bet Preflop: 10.64,
First, size your 3-bet bigger. I like to go at least 3x at a bare minimum, probably 4x here when the original raise was so small. You don't even double his bet, which is a no. You have a powerful hand that plays well against 1 or 2 opponents, not 3 or 4. Try to get it to heads-up preflop imo. (this ends up happening, which is good, but how it happened is not good.)
Your 4-bet is painfully small, again. You can find some good stuff online about sizing your bets, try doing that. When he 4-bets to 10 BB, you have 3 options. Fold, flat call, or jam. Overall, you need to work on your preflop sizing.
On this flop, you can continue once but then you are probably shutting down. If he wants to check this through to the river, that is fine imo. I don't really want to play for all of my chips with 2nd pair and a gut-shot.
When he calls you on the flop, he probably has no worse than a Broadway draw. On the turn, i would say you are drawing to 6 outs, (a jack or a queen) and are already dead against KK. Even when you hit your jack you aren't good every time, he can have JJ or maybe AQ, although we block that.
I would just check the turn. At this point you are playing wish poker if you think you are super strong, if he will let you, definatley check it down and hope he has JJ or some A-high hand.

Would definitely 3 Bet bigger as TenJack pointed out.
The way played one cant say much on the range the opponent holds as it where all min-raises and even on the last call the villain get such good odds that he can call with loads of hands.
On flop a bet is ok I would size the bet a bit smaller though like 2/3 pot which should give similar fold equity if the villain completely missed the board.
On the turn it is definitely a check in my book as you could easily be drawing dead.

3bet pre should be to 9-10bb. Dont 5bet.
Check turn as played.
Fold to river aggression unless we hit a Q.

On the turn is definitely a check. On the river, we act on the situation, but we tend to check and fold if the villain puts. You are beaten in 70% of cases. Remember, there was a 4-bet. A-Q is unlikely, the only hand that you beat is JJ. But I think there are AA, KK, AKs, AKo.
