I think my open w T9s is OK. Why I called 3bet OOP? - I know this should be fold, but if I fold every time here my opponents will have easy money 3Betting me every time. It isn't good hand to 4Bet bluff because I don't hve blockers but it plays good postflop.
I hit ten, so I'm ahead of AK, AQ, KQ and bluffs, so I called and also at those stackes players CBet Flop and Check Turn when missed.
I'm getting odds aganist JJ+ because I could hit flush.
Is my thinking correct?
You have multiple options:
1) Change seats (don't play out of positon to a good aggressive player that will exploit you over and over)
2) T9s can be 4 bet pre. I usually 4 bet for about 25 BBs (that way if they shove over my 4 bet I only lose a quarter of my stack). You want to raise your 4 bet bluffs the same size as your monster hands (AA/KK) so you don't show how strong your hand is. I had someone constantly 3 betting me in a full ring game. I 4 bet him with QJs for 25 BBs and he folded pre. Did not have to play out of position. I won the pot right there and then. If villain just flat calls your 4 bet. YOU HAVE EQUITY.
TT+,AQs+,AKo 71.69% equity
So even if they flat call in position you can do some damage if you flop a monster for example an open ended straight flush draw or you hit two pair/trips etc.
Other hands that are good to add to your 4 bet bluff range: Suited connectors, some low pocket pairs, Ax suited hands, Kx suited hands (blockers to AA & KK)
That way if you and the villain are constantly 3/4 betting each other your villain will not know if you are coming over the top with tight monster hands or a variety of 4 bet bluffs. *EDIT* (Just wanted to add this probably will not work at the lower stakes if the villain does not have a fold button LOL)
3) If you are worried about balancing your 4 bet range with bluffs and premium hands... you can just continue flatting pre. However if you are going to start flatting weak hands you will have to start flatting monster hands too like AKs, AA, KK, QQ, etc.
For example: I 3 bet AA, someone 4 bets me with KK, I smooth call the 4 bet with AA. The flop is 57T rainbow, I check out of position, KK c-bets and I shove over. KK calls thinking I have QQ or AK trying to steal the pot. (This actually happened for me recently, I baited a 10 NL reg to get it allin with the KK postflop. I probably could of got it allin preflop, but I just guaranteed it by faking weakness.
Honestly though I think the best answer would be to just change seats or leave the table unless you are at a full ring table that has 7 drooling fish and 1 solid reg player that unfortunately is sitting to your left at the table.
*EDIT* I also noticed you lost like 40 or more BBs by calling two streets with only a pair of Ts with a not so good kicker. It's hard for you to put your opponent on a range, because you cold called so villain could have ATC for all we know and is just firing away like a maniac because you are just passively calling pre and post flop. If you had 4 bet your T9s pre, you'd have some fold equity and if villain had shoved you would only lose 25 instead of 40+.
