PLO Hi, what do you do here? is my thinking right?
Hey, had just really sat down, won 1 small pot (60c) without showdown, didnt have any info on any of the players.
Ive annotated pot sizes and what i was thinking at each stage, would just like someone to have a look and see if i was on a totally crazy line or in the right area of thinking, thanks.

My thinking here was that he was poss raising w/ a big pair at least, maybe even just trying to bully the table thought i'd see the flop as i was in pos, would have a nice hand if the flop hit me , and he was 1 of the players i could double up through on this table, also the fact that he was on $20 didnt really worry me as anyone can double up in omaha if they hit the right cards, this guy could totally pay me off if i hit things like 2 pair, straight draws or flopped straights with his overpair

Here, after a bit of thought, i thought my 2 pair was good, he bet like he was protecting his hand, giving me bad odds
to draw at a flush or a straight, i think if he has a big flush draw plus a big over pair here he wants to give me the correct odds to draw to a lower flush, i was 60-70% sure that he has a big overpair to the board, so i figure if the board doesnt pair i'm good with my 6 7, and if the board pairs either the 6 or the 7 i'm stacking him.

ViperPro_87 bets $1.25

I dont think he had a flush here but i cant be 100% sure that he doesn't so i flat call, thinking that if i he checks the river i push, this is where i thought about posting on here because i think i play it badly from the turn onwards...
*** RIVER *** [2d 7h 6d Td] 5♦
ViperPro_87 bets $2.50
I call for $2.50 (Note, ive now put 4.60 into this pot, which is pretty much half my original stack, how does this affect how i should have played this hand?)
Here is where me and my friend disagree on this, the half pot bet confuses me but i'm getting 3-1 here so i'm definetly calling, the thing is, i put him in my head on a big over pair right from the start, i dont believe he has the flush on the turn and i dont believe it on the river, so why not raise?? I say, because i cant be 100% sure that he doesn't have 2 diamonds or even that he's raised with garbage and my reads are completely wrong, as i have only been at the table for 5-6 hands max, if i raise here i think only a hand that beats me is calling and if he comes over the top i can't call, my friend thinks that i should have trusted my gut here and raised it up, i think i'm was winning so put my money where my mouth is kinda thing!
What do you think he's on, could be on, what should i have done, not just on the river but throughout the entire hand!?
Please dont be too brutal but i can take, and kinda want, constructive crit if anyone can think of any.
I'll post the results after a bit of feedback, hopefully, thanks for any advice you can give me
