      When you check behind on the flop you probably get the best runout to bluffcatch. I think calling is fine. Usually you win often enough since he won't vbet enough TT and 9x hands plus he basically won't have that many compared to his random spazzes vs your check. When he sort of range merges and bets 7x, you have an easy call ofc, you beat way too much of his value range when he bets that hand to not call.
