Yes:

- The check from the BB at the beginning is perfect with a multi-way pot and a low pocket pair.
- You've got 6 players to the flop, and hit low set on a board with 3 hearts. Now, let's do the math that a random person has 2 hearts given that there are 3 showing already: 10/47 * 9/46 = ~4% per person. Maybe slightly higher if we assume that people like to play suited cards, but let's say 4%. You have 5 villains, so in theory there's about a 20% chance that you're in against a flush. Even then, you have multiple outs against a flush: 3 Ks, 3 5s, and 1 3, or 7 outs. To me, I think I'm ahead until I'm told otherwise at this point, so I value bet about the pot, which you did.
- On the turn, the 5 doesn't scare me too much. Who's calling a pot-sized bet with second pair on the flop on a scary flush board? Hopefully no one. So value-bet the pot again.
- River is as the turn, and you extracted some more value from people who were clearly willing to call.

I wouldn't have done it any differently, I think.

? if he called the river, you should have been able to see what he mucked in the history, no?

Honestly, I would have bet more on the flop. You only bet roughly the pot so you're giving players odds to call and chase the flush. Granted, by the turn it didn't matter but you don't want players outdrawing you if that 5 didn't come up. Nice pot!:)
