      What about check/call flop? Your hand still has value and can ofc get called by worse but not that much worse because you are perceived to be quite tight since opening UTG. You also won't cbet as a bluff very often on such a board so I think having overpair + FD it becomes a good spot to check/call, under-represeniting your hand and inducing light bets.
