      Would it be better to 3-bet pre-flop?
      On flop i wanted to protect my hand. In case of reraise i am clearly behind.

      Did i play well?

      Do you have stats or is the opponent unknown?

      I would play the hand also like that. Preflop is a 3bet not good. He raise you from UTG. From that position he don't has a wide openraising range.

      A raise on the flop is fine. Many cards on the turn can destroy your hand.

      3-bet preflop would be a bluff so I like the call better.

      Raising the flop for value is fine if we can expect villain to call/go broke with worse like AK, AQ, etc (with draws or not).

      Otherwise it's very thin and I recommend you use Equilab to see how you do against a range that can continue here. You will see that you aren't very far ahead.
