More PLO8

This hand broke me. 5 Limpers at the 25/50 level

Seat 1: $outhern boy (1600 in chips)
Seat 2: FrankNagaiJr (845 in chips)
Seat 3: aronharry (1705 in chips)
Seat 4: pfor (1320 in chips)
Seat 5: mobrown1257 (2680 in chips)
Seat 6: TOPHAT TWO (3495 in chips)
Seat 8: mdizzy53 (340 in chips)
Seat 9: GBuck08 (1515 in chips)

Me: Dealt to FrankNagaiJr [Ad 6s 2d 7h]

Flop: *** FLOP *** [7c 4d Ah]

I felt that I had a decent shot at high with two pair, and a backdoor shot at the low if I got very lucky, here so I pot-raised and then pushed, to face the following two hands:

GBuck08: raises 1215 to 1465 and is all-in
GBuck08: shows [3d Tc 2h 8c]

TOPHAT TWO: shows [Kh Kd 3c 5s]

As you may observe, I am ahead on the high. GBuck is ahead on the low and drawing to the wheel.

The 5 or 2 kills me both ways for 6 outs against. (One of my opponents makes the wheel and I don't)
The K kills me on the high. 2 outs against.
The 3 with no other wheel card gives me the backdoor low. 2 outs for.
The A or 7 gives me the lock high. 6 outs for. gives us the following stats:

cards scoop HIwin HIlos HItie LOwin LOlos LOtie EV
6s Ad 2d 7h 50 386 280 0 55 599 12 0.336
5s 3c Kd Kh 50 164 497 5 65 595 6 0.176
Tc 8c 3d 2h 104 111 550 5 528 120 18 0.488

So one might think KK35 was the big dog here? This player hit their 2 on the river for the miracle wheel scoop.

Any thoughts from PLO8 players here? I know my raise/call wasn't sterling, but I had been pushed out of some other pots by similar re-raises by other players chasing the low only, tossing two pair to see the high taken by a single weak pair.
