      Hi.

      Just bet the flop. The flop is not dry at all. The T and 9 are connecting cards whih give qj kq kj straight draws.

      Im not commenting on turn cos flop is a big mistake. Ur hand looks so underrepped.

      Can you please say how would you play turn? This spots are one of the toughest I guess, because it is going to lead to all in.

      He could have here any set which makes sense, or two pair, but also bluff because his high raise cbet. Also Hero played as having nothing which could induce bluff. And would he check turn with set here, I dont think so. I would play it call call.

      I would cbet the flop. 58% is actually pretty low Ftcbet in 3bet pot for a lot of players at these limits. T95 is not so dry.

      As for your second question, without decent empirical evidence that this guy is capable of check-raising turns in 3bet pots I would fold.

      Sure, he could be bluffing, especially since you are under-repped: If you thought he was bluffing a lot your best option is clearly to flat-call and evaluate the river.

      I would assume he just has a set a lot here though. In a lot of players mind's hands like sets are strong enough to check twice looking for a raise, while JJ,QQ is more often a turn donk. Also I wouldn't give him too much credit for understanding what your range looks like in this spot.
