I would have bet less preflop. 2.5x or 3x.
Like the call on the flop
Not to fond aboout the raise on the turn. I think I would call or raise more.
Your check OTR looks weak after you raised the turn. I would have continued the aggression and made a half pot bet, maybe a bit less, but enough to force BTN all-in.

As played, I would always call his shove. Sure he can have two pair, a set, a straight or even a flush, but also 10x, a busted straightdraw. I'm not folding a 1/3 potbet with an overpair while btn did not show any sign of aggression.
