      Preflop: i dont think u should be 3betting this without reads vs a utg range. Are u going to 5bet or fold vs a 4bet?

      Flop: ur bet is too big. I would half pot my entire range here (that is if u are concerned with balance). It just makes bluffing easier.

      Without reads its hard to say whether u have 3 streets from worse. Dont see how TT/99 hands can call down so that leaves us with JJ, some JXs combos, maybe other sets if hes loose and some overpair combos if he is trappy.

      Shoving can never be too bad of a decision, though your overly large flop and preflop bet size made the stack to pot ratio extremely awkward.
