      Now then, on the turn, was that push profitable (if you didn't know what he was going to do)?
      Or was it just stupid?

      I would push the Flop (continuation Bet).
      The Turn is a bad spot for a bet. You showed weakness on the Flop, so he won't believe you the Jack. There's no strong Hand, you would play like that, I think he would have called you with any pocket pair.

      But I may be wrong, better wait for a Judge answer ;)

      C-Bet the Flop. Even if you hold JJ here, C-bet the Flop, no reason not to do that. And on the Turn I would just check behind, unless I hold a Pocket Pair myself.

      c-bet means all-in push. But this flop isn´t too bad for that, you maybe could think what kind of hand UTG lim/called. Some players would do that with low pocket pairs so that means they will probably check/call your push on the turn. I´ve would played that hand the same way.
