      First of all I know I played this horribly. Against so many opponents I should have checked flop, check/called turn and called smallish bet on the river probably...

      As played, I can call flop and turn and fold to a river bet?

      In a limped pot, I would donk pot-size to be honest.

      He shows quite some strength, so drawing to the nuts in position, it's easy calls imo. River check behind is fine.

      Like how you played it.
      He would likely c/c river with two pair if you improve to flush and sometimes he has there draw himself, so calling turn should be standard
      Also prefer raising pf 1$ and not give 42o fee flop.
