TT over pair in position vs a 3 barrel

This was the $1.10 $200 GTD on ACR
Villain is solid player. We both had decent stacks.
Still not in the money yet.

Called preflop in position and got a good flop for TT.
Villain bet flop, turn, and river
Not sure if I should have played differently on any of the streets?
And was the River the wrong decision?

Re: TT over pair in position vs a 3 barrel

V has 20BB? Just 3B/call pre w/ a hand as strong as TT. I would also shove pre instead of standard 3B size if the stacks behind us were shorter.

AP, villain's line is very weird for this board texture, but is likely value-heavy(99/A9s/T9s/sets would likely play this way, and maybe even badly played JJ-AA), so I think folding Turn or River are both viable. Yes turn bet is small, but what do we beat? If he got some miracle bet through OTT/OTR w/ AJhh, oh well, 3B pre next time I wouldn't expect a FD to bet so small OTT anyway -- aka why wouldn't they just shove to maximize FE?

Re: TT over pair in position vs a 3 barrel

Yeah I'm not sure how 20bb effective counts as a "decent stack."

His bet sizing is really odd - he has a PSB on the turn but instead of shoving he opts to make a 30% bet on the turn and then a half pot shove on the river. Clearly he isn't concerned about protecting his hand, and if he had something like AK/AQ/AJ/KQ he would just shove the turn. Flush draw wouldn't play it like this either. So I wouldn't be surprised to see a set or even 99 here.
