      I think I'd rather 3bet pre in this spot, because it's a tricky hand to play OOP w/o initiative. As played, i think call turn and evaluate river is the best line, although u are very often beat on the river.

      I also think 3-bet is fine, although T9s plays also fine postflop, so call is also ok
      turn: you´re either b/f there or bet/shoving. players usually isn´t going to raise that turn with too many worse hands especially when they play very straight forward so b/f is fine
      as played: I´d prefer you´d call river shove, since you have put too much money in the pot quite strong hand, so it doesn´t make sense now to fold. If you thought you were ahead on the turn, then very likely you´re ahead on the river. That´s why turn shove is better than b/c. you don´t have to face river shove which would come most of the times
