preflop the 900 call is high.... with such a hand versus 2 players
postflop you made no mistake but you could expect him to have a flushdraw wich he hitted on the turn.
But most amazing is actap s starting hand , the only explanation to me is that he wanted just to play versus picigin and raised so much to scare you off... which did not work and finally he was just lucky.
But your call preflop was also bad (already 2 people in the pot)
I agree with thefly, actap was trying to isolate the small stack. I may of tried a raise pre-flop to isolate him myself and then seen what happened from there, small stack would of gone all in, you should see that coming, actap may have then folded or just flat called. Post flop once the flush draw came out, proceed with caution, if the flush hits you would have no outs, in that case let the big stack donkey bully take the pot and get ready for the next hand, if it does not I would push hard with only 1 card to come to try to get actap to fold. The re-raise post flop gave actap too much pot odds for him to fold, I think that the flat call pre-flop, then the re-raise post-flop were your only mistake, the call on the end you were kind of pot committed (although I hate that term, and do not subscribe to that line of thinking) and yes you did get unlucky, but compounded the unluckiness both pre and post flop. good luck out there.
The big lesson learned playing PLO is when a potenially strong hand can go to hell in a hurry by the river. If you hit the flop with one of your suits or it came rainbow your hand may have stood up. A flush draw is always dangerous and paired boards are common. Yes, you were unlucky here although the red flop should have set off alarm bells. Could be useful to study reverse implied pot odds. They show where the cards that go against you winning the hand by the river will indicate a fold.
