      Villian is hsortstack, so no reason to play slow JJ.

      On flop villian will call AK, KJ, AT, KT, Tx, 99-22 - so I guess I have plenty of value hands.
      I could have shoved preflop but I think this is fine too.

      Hey I,

      Preflop it's better to shove than to make your size. Either make it like 0.90 or just shove.

      On the flop, shove vs his bet, he is not 3betting 22 there to get it in. He minbets some draws and calls them off and some made hands. Sometimes he bet/folds some hands like A6 of spades but raising small then shoving vs 3bet means you get it in in very bad shape.
