      Could i get more money in this hand? Maybe bet less on the flop, but if a high card appears? Maybe i could do this being in position?

      If you bet less and an overcard appears your positional advantage doesn't help you, because you can't fold with only having like 1/4 of the pot left and a good pair.
      Moving All-In is the best move here.

      (Notice that with AA or KK you can bet a smaller amount here, as you don't have to fear overcards that much, still the board is pretty drawheavy for straights)
