      I think your line is OK.

      But I don't see a reason to overbet the pot on the flop though. IMO $1.00~$1.10 is enough.

      I don't see villain calling with weaker hands on the river, the board is kinda scary even for two pair and villain has played this hand pretty weakly. Against an unknown I think checking behind is OK.

      there was so many players in the flop,
      i think that somebody had a straight draw for sure, that's why i did big raise on flop

      A big bet is one thing, an overbet is another. IMO, an overbet is usually wrong, but as I said, you should bet big on the flop. A SD is very likely, but you don't want to scare it by overbetting.

      Betting 1,4$ into 1,3$ pot isn´t overbet.
      Like to see that NL 10 player has reached platinum status :)
      I would bet on the river, since doubt that SB would check with straight.
