Board: [Th 3c 9s 6s Jd]
Seat 1: ronitis folded before the Flop
Seat 2: Imrefuelin (button) mucked [Jc Ts] - two pair, Jacks and Tens
Seat 3: DALUP (small blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 4: SuR3is666 (big blind) folded on the Turn
Seat 5: Jazob folded before the Flop
Seat 6: Dabum7878 folded before the Flop
Seat 7: ttomas777 folded before the Flop
Seat 8: Danbalu folded before the Flop
Seat 9: 4epdak showed [8h 7h] and won (6,759) with a straight, Jack high

With a hand as weak as T high should I have bet my opponent all in after flop? I never put the opponent on 7,8. I thought he may have held J,8. What would have been a better way to play this hand?

You can eliminate any mistakes made post flop by folding this pre-flop. Easy fold on river however. If you like your chips, that is!

Preflop: I dont mind limping behind and getting position in the the following streets.

Flop: Is a fold.It should be something in the back of your mind as why the open limper is now opening up.Limpers usually have Ax,suited cards and connectors.So he could have AT,A9 or more likely a draw.Since the board is so draw heavy I would just look for a better spot.Your hand will not get any better with the next two streets.

they could also do that with 33... and hit a set of 3's on the flop.
