      This hand doesn't have potential and limping makes it even worse.

      Flop play is ok, but you should bet the turn to protect yourself from better flush draws (I would bet at least $4). Giving a free card with your weak flush is really bad.

      About your line...If you checked the turn, you should b/f river because you can't beat any flush and since board paired any set improved and beats you.

      Don't play this kind of hands and if you do at least try from late positions when you can use your position to outplay your opponent.
