      Known players:

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with T:club: , T:diamond:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.25, MP1 raises to $1.25, Hero calls $1.25, MP3 folds, CO calls $1.25, 3 folds, UTG2 calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($5.35) 8:diamond: , 9:heart: , 3:club: (4 players)
      UTG2 checks, MP1 bets $4.00, Hero raises to $12.00, CO raises to $22.28 (All-In), UTG2 raises to $28.83 (All-In), 2 folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $65.91

      Few Thoughts:
      - Can I 3bet preflop with TT or is that overplayed? I can certainly call with clear set value like I did here.

      - Flop I have an overpair but with 3 overlimpers I am pretty worried someone might have a set. I raise the cbet to protect from overcards however when two players move in behind me (one who has check/pushed) I credit at least one with a set and fold.

      Knowing that I have to fold if someone pushed (A push will usually be JJ+ or a set I reckon), should I have just flat called flop or even folded?

      You should 3-bet TT for value, because it is ahead MP1 isolating range and you should want to get hu with ip or take pot down pf.
      I think it is not good to raise to find out where you at, I´d rather prefer flat call there, because MP1 range is quite strong when he bets out into 3 players and you can fold if someone is c/r his c-bet
      As played: fold is fine- you´re not ahead there enough times to call.
