Default Overplay an overpair?

Aussie Qualifier on PP ($210/$15)
53 player MTT
Winner gets package to Australian Open

Level 5.
We're down to 3 tables and about 25 players.
Hero is the button with t2000.
Villain is in the BB and table chip leader with t4500.

Hero dealt TT. Several limpers, Hero raises to t450. Villain flat calls in the BB. Everyone else folds.

9-6-2 rainbow flop. Villain checks, Hero swings t750 (about half my stack). Villain check raises all-in.

What's your play?

I'd call this, I think. Sometimes you're up against a higher overpair or a set here. More often it's A9, a draw, an underpair, two overs etc. Since he's the chip leader, he might just be bullying with crap...

Easy call. You put too much of your stack in to fold regardless of what you think he has.

I agree that I have to call his push here. I'm not all that happy about it, but I have to.

Let me ask it a different way...how would you have played this hand differently? Or was my line ok?

Automatic call, unlucky to be against a set or higher pair here, and as mentioned, too much has gone in to fold.. I'd have preferred moving all in after the flop and not have to make this decision and put the decision on him

FWIW...I'm thinking I played this poorly, but I ended up getting all the money in with the best hand. Villain turned over KQ and proceeded to river a Q to knock me out of the tournament.

I feel pretty comfortable with the allin call given the way I played the hand, but I guess I'm trying to figure out if there was a way I could have played this hand with less risk and without risking my entire stack. I seem to get in this situation alot and am convinced there is a flaw in the way I'm playing overpairs.

How's that possible? With position, you just have to punish the limpers with a big raise. You just got unlucky, that's all.

Well if you're really worried about putting your stack at risk, you can just push the flop. I don't know the exact counts, but it doesn't look like your stack is ridiculously bigger than the pot (1550 vs ~1200ish?) So if you just shove, your fold equity is increased.
