Default NL10 AA flops JJ8 and meets aggression

CO is a new player to me and i have no good reads on him, since i am 4-tabling. so i didnt notice him until then.
His first raise didnt mean much to me, i thought maybe he's protecting a weak hand or just trying to bluff me, but i got cautious.

so i called and tried something like a blocking-bet, hoping to get him to fold if theres nothing or at least not to get raised again, but he did raise(maybe it seemed like weakness to him ??)...

Whats your line in this situation or would you play a whole other style?

thanks for any explanatory posts...

That's probably the best safe option IMO. Hard to tell without a read on the guy, though. Does he have an overpair as well, a jack, a draw he's betting at aggressively (this seems unlikely)? If I was in his position, I probably would have raised you the first time without a jack, but I don't think I would have on the turn when you could have the jack, the two draws, or the overpair you actually have.

I suppose if you call, then bet .1 on the river, he'll raise to .20, right?

I'd probably call and c/c a reasonable river bet
