      I wouldn't donk out. You have good hand with good equity, but I do not wanna go crazy here, you are still behind sets/overpairs, flipping against two pair, so free card which you may get if he check backs without betting turn can't hurt. As played btw I doubt u have enough equity to call of he raises to big (you need like 50%), but one thing I would't do here - 3bet.
      Without reads I just put him on solid range here and as you see you are behind and that even including 98/9T without which you would be even worse here. You may add some bluffs here, but as there are no reads or stats I assume he value raises your donk.
      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 35.001% 32.07% 02.93% 17461 1597.00 { JsTs }
      Hand 1: 64.999% 62.07% 02.93% 33795 1597.00 { 88+, QJs, T9s, 98s, QJo, T9o, 98o }

      Correct if I'm wrong.

      Call his raise but don't 3bet. He is almost never 4bet bluffing so by 3bettubg you take out his weak hands and keep in those that beat you. No reason to do that. Your pair isn't even that strong with a J kicker and sometimes your OESD is dead as well and you can only split.

      I think donking out is fine, you have quite good equity and he may also call with worse hands
      If you get raised that much then I also like calling more, since you´re not getting all-in that good against his range
      If you miss you can c/f turn and be done with your hand. I doubt he is raising that big with AJ or overcards that you should play there for stacks
