      I don't know how to play this. Decided that people don't bluff raise this board texture in 3bet pots so I folded.

      I bluff raise this texture often, because it's great for my calling range and people get into though spot with almost everything :) I think shove/fold are equal option without reads, if he has set, u have note, if he folds, u know he is bluffraising this boards.

      Without any reads against unknown without any dynamics Im leaning towards fold, as we dont know how wide is he calling 3bets. I think that since villain is in co its tighter in general.
      Against such tight range

      Board: T:spade: 9:heart: 4:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    75.63%  75.50%   0.12% { TT-99, T9s, KsQs, KsJs, QsJs }
      MP3    24.37%  24.25%   0.12% { QdQh }

      we're completely crushed. If can expect villain to have a bunch more draws, than shoving is fine.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Yeah, most likely going to be a bit safer to leave it alone whilst also being a bit deeper. Difficult to continue here vs total unknown who definitely has in his calling range TT/99 and maybe even traps as KK/AA.

      Best Regards.
