      I think your flop raise is too big.
      I would likely not raise flop with JJ that spot, but rather call and then consider folding on the turn against big bet.
      If you want to go with your hand, then raise smaller to 6$, since that looks more bluffy and he may shove over your raise hands like AQ/AK

      best regards,
