      I don't think you can even get worse Aces off with a cbet on such a dry flop... but I think bet/fold and check/fold are both ok.

      Also, there is no need to cbet that much on a dry flop and 3bet pot anyway.

      I'd make it around $0.8 preflop.

      As played on the flop $0.75-0.80 will be enough if you wanna bet at all, as rickydaprince suggested both c-bet/folding and check/folding are fine, depending on how tight UTG is. If you don't know him go ahead and fire, if he's a tag with mostly medium pocket pairs or a bad player who has lots of trash in his 3bet-calling range, you might be better off giving up as they usually won't fold those on such a flop.

      Hope it helps.
