Folding TT here is just being stupid. You can play weak - and you can play too weak.
It's fine to limp. I'd raise to t60 though.

I'm probably check-folding the flop.

This is a bad idea. You will get too many callers and you end up playing for set value, just at a higher price than if you limp.

Uh... if you're going to see a flop with TT, you better not fold to all undercards without a serious read, which you probably won't have on the first hand. Also, limping rather than raising preflop keeps the pot smaller, which will keep you out of a lot of trouble with marginal holdings such as TT.

I don't fold all flops with undercards. I fold when I suspect that I'm beat. This villains betting pattern is enough for me to lay down TT.

You are aware that this is a 10+1? And that you just made a read based on the villain's "betting pattern"?
