      BB: $26.32 (52.6 bb)
      UTG: $34.92 (69.8 bb)
      MP: $32.59 (65.2 bb)
      CO: $101.65 (203.3 bb)
      BTN: $56.66 (113.3 bb)
      Hero (SB): $48 (96 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, BB folds, BTN calls $3

      Flop: ($9.50) 9 T 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.12, BTN raises to $17.50,

      Small sample on villain (60hands), opens 70% of btns folds 60% (1/2 in btn)

      To me his range seems like overpairs/sets (maybe twopair?). All hands that draw would call there I guess.

      If this is the case, then this is a fold.
      What do you think that his range is in that spot?

      I would cbet a bit smaller on flop. Not much but 80% seems too much to me ain a 3bet pot. You can leverage stacks with lower sizings while not betting too small to let your opponent draw cheaply.

      I think your opponent's range here can be pretty balanced usually so he'll have a lot of hands types but usually will be ahead of your specific hand with his range imo. I am thinking if you should ever check this flop with your hand because:

      a) he bets IP as a bluff often in this spot
      b) he vbets thinner than TPTK
      c) you check/fold often (at least I do with my crappy overs without any equity) so this TPTK + BDFD gets you easily to showdown.
