      When 3betting it's usually an idea to try and represent KK+, which you would cbet on any flop. So I would cbet here even if the board is draw heavy. As played, I'm in c/f mode after the flop.

      It's hard to continue against two opps, but I think that's the way to do it as giving up seems just too weak and you can make one cbet here unless you know they won't fold anything - then it becomes useless as you want to improve not invest money in pot you are behind in.
      As played without action on flop it seems fine to me, but I wouldn't bet river as he luckily called you with K high, but I doubt they will do it often enough to make sense betting as they will never fold any pp here after you didn't bet two streets.

      I think your play is fine
      board is so coordinated that it is hard to take it down against two very loose players
      Not sure you can valuebet river, but since they might call with worse hands I think it is fine
