got stats only on utg - 35 hands 23/23

Preflop didn't want to play a family pot OOP so I decided to raise, tell me if a call would have been better given the utg open and the button minsqueeze.
Should I barrel like half pot on the turn too? I'm not sure how to read the btn, that minsqueeze is kind of fishy, could be premiums could be speculative hands
The river is kind of clear, either a bluff or a flush.

Hi Pray,

Button not topping up his stack and making this silly click raise, I would read as not a good player. Therefore I really like the reraise to isolate him as he should have a hand worse than QQ almost always here. I don't really care about UTG, he's only got 33 bb's to start the hand so if he shoves it's fine and if he folds it's fine.

To the flop we are HU vs. a range that rates to be well behind us, and a low SPR under 3... planning our hand around commitment, I think we will be profitable to stack off with an overpair to the board. So my preference is to bet bigger on the flop, like .50c, which if called sets up a nice turn shove of 1.16 into 1.60.

As played river is a super easy fold, we have 3rd pair facing a pot sized all in wager.
