SB has a very narrow range to be playing like that in reaction to your re-raise. AA, KK, QQ, AK, AQ are all in his range. When the flop hits, you are already behind and your TT are essentially a bluff catcher and maybe you might be able to chase a backdoor flush. I wouldn't have proceeded past the turn. Arguably I wouldn't have gone past the flop. There's just nothing you can do that's better than folding on the flop.
This is a hand where it is very helpful to have stats on the villain. Some players will 3 bet to just 3 bet and others when they min 3 bet like this it means they are nutted. I would not 4 bet here unless I had a clear read this 3 bet was biscuits. I think this plays much better to call here and set mine as well as bluff catch depending on the runout and bet sizing. If you call here pre it also keeps the pot size down and makes it easier to float and bluff catch more streets vs bloating the pot with a 4 bet.
As played on the flop I can see a case for both folding or calling but I think folding is better. Calling puts us in a tough spot on the turn since low cards dont change anything and if we are going against a big pair then we are still beat and high cards make it more likely we are now beat. Folding is nitty but unless I have the read that villain does these moves with weird hands I have to take it as face value which to me is a monster. I called the small pre flop bet to set mine and it didnt happen so I would fold. Plus all Qx which is a lot if the hand is not a monster is already ahead of us.
