      Preflop: This is usually a -EV call when the raise size is 4X and we are OOP vs two other players with a not-so-strong hand but if they are both fishes I think we have to call here.

      The squeeze is kind of small and the call is marginal but acceptable especially when the fishes both called.

      Flop: I would probably check/fold still unless the 3better is known to cbet a lot on the Flop and give up on the Turn.

      Turn: I would just c/c Turn and c/c River

      River: We turn 2 pair now. Our options are to check/raise or lead. I don't think check/raise makes that much sense unless we are deeper and want to get more money in. If we take note of the stack:pot ratio I think there is 12$ left in a 18$ pot so just shoving directly seems feasible.

      Checking would only make more sense if we think villain bluffs a lot. But his aggression is on the lower side, and I would expect him to check back a lot. And I don't want to just check and always pay off his AQ/QQ here. I prefer to just donk-shove myself and expect him never to fold AK/AJ type of hands here.
