3-bet Pot with suited connector shortly before finale table

Hi guys,

this is a hand with ~20 Player left in a $215 buy in 1000+ players field. I was doing well with 60bb and chip lead at my table.
I would appreciate your thoughts on this hand:
a) overplayed by calling the SB 3-bet? Is my perception of "deep" wrong?
b) should I have called the flop bet?

Not much info, villain is new player at the table. We had only played 13 hands.
My reasons for calling the preflop 3-bet:
1) we are relatively (!?) deep for such a tournament
2) I have position
3) I cant call just with my best hands. I feel (please correct me here!) that suited connectors with this relatively deep stacks are worth a call, as
it is more unlikely that they are dominated. Also: The odds were 1:2.27 {~ 30% equity needed}. I just ran it through an equity calculator and it
says that I would have 34% against a top 7% range {TT+,ATo+;ATs+}.I actually expect him to 3-bet wider.
Clear (!?) conclusion: call

My reason for folding at the flop:
1) chickened out
2) chickened out (my wounderful stack! 10% of it in the flop, just for a "speculative" play, see below)
What I am thinking now
1) Flop texture not the best for his range (unless of course he had a monster JJ+)
2) I got a little bit of the flop: gut-shot + back door flush
3) I have position! Maybe it is just a c-bet and I can float him?
4) Good price, 1:3.8 ~20%

I am torn between stack protection and chip accumulation?

Here comes the hand:
