How could I played this hand differently ? What do you guys think about my raise on the flop and my bet size on the turn ? As played can I get away from my hand on the turn after he shoves ?
His range is something like TT, 44, 77, maybe JJ and T7 as value bets. Don't think he shoves with JJ though but it is certainly possible. He can really have a bunch of bluffs here like 56s, 89s, J9s or even an almost unlimited amount of flush draws as his range is extremly wide on the bb in a multiway pot. The 3 wasn't really the best card since he could easily have 56. But at least I don't have a heart in my hand.
No informations about the player available because I just played a few hands with him. :/

Villain leads into 3 other players on the flop. He's either quite strong, or drawing to the nuts. I flat the flop, looking to get to showdown without getting my stack in.

bet bigger preflop- you're UTG and likely to be out of position in later betting rounds and your range should be really strong. by betting small you make it cheap for the fish to suck out on you with their junk.

I agree with c3. The semi standard (noob vs noob) line c-c-f is good enough here. If he is nit or tight tag give up. If agro, lag or spazzy side your line is perfect.
Given he bets so small on the flop, then flats, I would put him to the most likely draw, so your line is great. Problem is that margin of error is quite large without more info. So I would play the same, but I think it's leak of mine. The problem with this play is that hero plays for stack every time, but villain only sometimes, when he beats hero and when he bluffs big with equity.
Turn bet size is good, but given you put him on the draw and he seems to want it, you can bet tiny bit more.

I'd say he's drawing or caught a 2 pair. When he leads out it is likely he have something good which he thinks is good against an UTG open range.
Personally, a 2 pair would make much sense to me. Or maybe a set of 4s or 7s.
I think I'd also raise the flop here but would maybe check back the turn and call the river considering the sizing.
This is what I think I'd do personally but depends on the villain of course. But people above me have much more experience.
Other than that there are some reasons why he would go aggressive on you.
1. You are short stacked. A likely target for fish hunters.
2. Your UTG pre flop bet sizing is small. Another weak play.

I like the raise on the flop. When he donks it and calls a the raise, he either has the nutflushdraw (or 2nd nut draw), a 7 with 2 hearts, 2pair or a set. When you put him on a draw, I'd shove the turn, that way you get maximum fold-equity. If you bet 0.60 like you did, your stack is going in anyway.
However at these stakes, when someone donks flop and call, they are nutted 90% of the time. So I think I just give up on the turn and check-fold
