      on turn:
      you are in position , bet and he shoves .. so a fold is appropriate
      rest is fine

      Pre & flop seems fine to me. I would keep betting turn as well, because I think going broke is totally fine as he may play 88-TT the same as 66/77/44/33 and 5x shouldn't be in his 3bet calling range too often (stats would help here).
      Just my humble opinion.

      TT and JJ are such hard hands to play. I know for sure I'm not stacking with them on that flop. I even doubt 3bettting them even IP. Usually I iso myself against AQ+, JJ+ at most, sometimes even a tighter range. Pheww... What can I say... B/f turn is fine imo but checking behind for pot control I think is better as we are not sure we even have the best hand. If you do that you might be able to call a small river bet or you can easily fold...

      +1 for not posting the results. They just make it harder to correctly try and evaluate the hand...

      I would also b/c turn, since you´re ahead very often and can play for his stack on the turn and river
