      Not even sure if I should've called the initial raise. Still, r/r a bit less? I put him on a flush draw and didn't want him to get another card cheap....

      well played, if your c/r is too small he gets his odds to call on his draw.

      Don´t think there is much difference, but I would c/r here for 4$.
      The money goes in anyway on the turn and the UTG has to decide if he wants to play for stack with overpair or not.
      4$ also seems a little weaker than 3x initial raise+ it is easier to type in:D .
      But 4,40$ is also fine, just the matter of taste.

      I'm pretty sure I call if he pushes to my r/r. I still get outs for a full house if he hits his draw, and if he's got an overpair than I say ship it.... I really don't mind stacking off here, but I'm more concerned with protection at this point, considering villain's pot-size flop bet I'm put off a little by a str8 or flush draw.

      What really made me want to post this hand is to get feed back on my check-raise, if there might be something I missed there that would give me a little better equity, but I won't complain with the hand as is.
