Is it good every now and pay 3 bet from the big blind from the button being over 100 if we both bb and our hand is 9 10 suit?
Is the same example if we have a hand like 55, 66, 77?

It is okay sometimes when in position, but only sometimes. Blinds will often play back at you when you open-raise from the BTN because you look like you're FOS.
Ok, I'm going with Benji's translation. I think you said that you had no information on your opponent. With suited connectors you should probably just let this go (fold) until you have at least some read on him. The same goes for pairs (55,66,77) but to a lesser degree. Both the pairs and the suited connectors are hands that need to improve in order to continue. With the pairs you're going to want to see another card of the same rank (a set). That will happen about 1 in 7.5 (6.5:1) hands meaning if every $1 you call you'll need to make $6.50 when you win just to break even. It get's even worse with the SC's where you will want to flop at least 2 pair to continue. The odds
of that are about 11.5:1. So if you bet $3 and get raised to $9 you'll have to call another $6. On the rare occasions that you flop 2 pair or better you will need to make $69 just to break even. That's a pretty tall order to fill so if you're going to call you need to have a plan. no read on opponent = no plan.
