Correct laydown?

I have very limited history on the villain. He was running 40/10/2.0 @ 9 hands:

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from

UTG ($9.85)
UTG+1 ($10.18)
MP1 ($2.13)
MP2 ($10.04)
CO ($10.36)
Button ($13.34)
SB ($9.62)
Hero (BB) ($10.67)

Preflop: Hero is BB with Qs, Jd
6 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero bets $0.30, SB raises to $0.80, Hero calls $0.50
His OOP re-raise, with no history, should have gotten me to fold. Yet I call, in position, to see a flop. My thought is that we are 100BB deep, and I have position. I would like to see a flop in position

Flop: ($1.60) 9c, Jh, 10d (2 players)
SB bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80
I'm not loving this bet out here. Perhaps this is a situation where I should be "raising for information?" He could easily have 99 / KQ / AK / AA / KK.

Turn: ($3.20) Qd (2 players)
SB bets $3.20, Hero folds
I can't handle the pressure with my turned 2 pair. He has to have something. I don't think he has AA, which is really the only hand I beat in this spot. However, if he has any K, he has me crushed. I'm not laying down a turned 2 pair too often, but a sizable pot sized bet forces me out of the hand.

Total pot: $3.20 | Rake: $0.21

SB didn't show
Outcome: SB won $2.99

Other than the PF call, do you think this is a standard laydown? My little adventure cost $1.60.
