      Is it ok to trap UTG here?, the flop is dry on the turn i think i should re-raise more something like 4,40 $.

      The board is quite dry and a perfect opportunity to slowplay. Only possible hand you are losing to is 999 and UTG is making the pot / protecting for you with his overs.

      Turn re-raise is quite big enough, possibly even too big - speaking as someone who has an identified leak in that I dont get paid enough for my monsters. Youve got to consider UTG's hand range here to be either an overpair or two overcards and you dont want to push them out of the pot completely. With hindsight id minraise here, making the pot $6.80 if he just calls it down, giving us a legitimate shove of just under pot size on the river that hopefully isnt too scary for QQ+ to call down.
