Default FLO8: how to play A3xx postflop

For me the hardest card combination to play is A3xx, i allways struggle with flop play, making this hand a loser for me.
i allready adjusted play with A3 preflop: i usually fold rainbow combos EP/MP, or A3 with bad high prospects (like A379).
the harddest part (for me) is to identify if i have hit / drawing to 2nd nut low only (meaning i have an A2xx opponent) or if my low (draw) is best right now.
WIth significant flop action and no high prospect i throw away A3, yet i am still losing money with A3.

so some input for playing A3 would be nice.

fwiw...

From my extremely limited PLO8 (yay, I'm offtopic already...) experience, I'd say that A3xx requires position.

In FLO8, I guess you won't benefit from position in the same way, but the general trend should be that you consider to play the hand beyond the flop, be aggressive on the flop and on the turn, but go callstation on the river.

EDIT: Oops, that wasn't helpful.

A2 is the main problem, so if someone is around to the end and bets into you, you will call with any mediocre high (2p?) and your A3

2pair is the most winning hand combination for Hi in FLO8, so 2 pair is a call very often in itself, if i have a high prospect/draw, playing (agressive) with A3 is unquestionable, the problem arises when you have no or almost no hi prospect.
Nut low wins the low end about 25% , second nut low wins the low about 11%, basically the key is to find out if your A3 is nuts or second nuts.
flop and turn bets often arise around the high half, less around the low(draw), this is what it makes it hard to find out how good your A3 is (for me).
