      Hello Gloryne,

      Preflop: Fold the hand preflop vs UTG range. You ain't gonna play it very profitable. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Well, according his bet sizes it might even be something like AK in his range as well. The only hand which may 3barrel there is some Ax hand and most likely that's the only hand you beat. But for the given odds shouldn't be that wrong to even Call there. But of course that also depends mainly on the opponent.

      Best regards.

      the main issue here I think is turn play. I would lead towards a big raise on turn; only rarely are you gonna be up against a FH at that point, and if your planning on calling river bet anyways you might as well step up and be the aggressor here. your probably in front with the straight here but there are just too many scare cards for you, and action killing cards if OP has trips.
