      opponent is known to be 33/18 with 53 steal, AF 5. i thought that the raise on the flop could be full of air since he checked behind on the flop and if he had a A, i still had some equity with my draw. however im not sure if hes full of air enough.

      Cbet that flop. That's what I would first do. Next, I would fold the turn. You have FD+gutshot but you are behind nevertheless. And the point of shoving with a good, not great draw on the turn is to make your opponent fold some hands like TPGK, second pair, other draws. Here you just don't have fold equity so you voluntarily stick you money in behind which is a losing play for the long term.

      I wouldn't 3bet T9s OOP. Even tho it's hand that plays good, I may just wait at least I have position on him. As played I think you have to cbet flop as it hits a lot of your 3betting range. On turn I tend to c/c or c/f if I don't have odds to call. It's enough even against aggro opp and this seems like wasting money to me.

      3-bet is fine, but I´d also prefer c-betting flop to fold out some lower pp-s and it is not unreasonable to think he´d fold there also guthots
      Also you can barrel again when you hit your flushdraw
      Turn: to bet/shove you have to think he is bluffing at some times. And since you checked flop he may bluffraise you from time to time so with your equity shove is not terrible
