      I'm not sure of my 3bet preflop, don't know if he can call light here, even if I already did 3bet a few times in previous hands.
      The flop is quite good and I bet for value against eventually worse aces or intermediate pp. I did ignore his minbet, however I now think I could have interpreted this as a "I have something weak", typically a small pp. I think I should've bet the turn for value. However the flush got in and I though that I did not need to protect anymore and that there was not a lot of hands left to value against.
      I think my reraise river is wrong, there is no worse hand to call me here, and I'm mostly going to split there, so a call might have been better.

      What do you guys think?

      standard 3-bet against min-raise pf
      Since you also have there flushdraw with your trips I´d bet turn 5$ and then shove river

      - you have third nuts and if he is folding split then you have to shove every single time. I´d personally would raise to 15$ to get called maybe flush or 99
