      Hey Skyora808,

      I'm not a huge fan of 3betting TT vs a relatively unknown MP. Best option is to flat call without further reads - there is no guarantee you will get action from worse.

      When BB cold-calls you need to proceed very cautiously. I don't mind betting the flop for protection but you need to bet super small or not bet at all. $1.50 would do here to induce a call from AQ/AK type hands. If you bet too big here you are not getting action from worse often enough to make it profitable.

      As played turn fold is fine, villain's line is very strong here.
