no info , turn is nice card for me.... at least i thought so :<
9+8 makes so many straight combinations ... i wanted to get it in against JT , JQ... if i just called i would need to avoid so many river cards, or simply i ll have so many troubles OTR... so i instead jammed..

Preflop I strongly suggest making a standard 3bb raise, both for value and protection. Raising the flop may be ok if we expect to get called by tp or draws, but I think you would be better off just flatting against an unknown. Keep his range wide and let him barrel the turn with all the hands you are beating. Either way, when your turn bet gets raised warning bells need to go off. His line looks very strong and you only have a pair. Folding would be best. Stacking off in this spot is going to be costly. You will be facing an overpair, trips or full houses much more often than drawing hands. Most players at 2NL will not play draws so aggressively on the flop and turn.

GL and have fun at the tables!
