You'll probably see overpairs/two pair here plenty, so just shove...if he flopped a straight just reload and move on.

Raise the flop without a shred of a doubt.
As played, felt it and its not even close

Get pair and straight draws to stack off
Get pairs and flush draws to stack off
Get overpairs to stack off
Get 2 pairs to stack off

If he has a straight oh well, you still have reasonable equity.

Also you might be better served posting this in the full ring forums, this one is for 6max only.

You'll probably get better advice in the FR forum, but I'd still raise this UTG. As played, raise the flop the first time around. Seriously, just calling here is absolutely horrible. That's a very wet flop, and you have a monster. You want to protect, and extract from combo draws and hands like TPTK that you have beat. As played, push, you're way ahead of their range, and you can't afford to give a cheap turn card.

This isn't anything to consider at 0.05/0.10, people there play so badly, their range is infinite. I'd shove every time.
