      Most probably.
      However, you're decreased bet size (half pot size instead of 2/3) shows your opponent you don't have the ace yourself and if I were him, I'd raise you too, even without the ace, because you showed fear of the scare card.

      When I have QQ in that position, I play it differently.
      Either I bet pot on the flop to take it down right there (overpair is a very vulnerable hand), or I conti-bet 2/3 on the turn.

      i think is correct . you could be against A t with flush draw or against a set maybe . depends on the stats of your opponent . fold looks the best solution
      problem is your bet on the drawy flop is way to little . pot size was better in this situation

      You should bet a little bit more on flop and turn. Otherwise, nh.

      peter,

      bet a bit more on the flop?
      how much exactly?
      i would bet about $ 1.2 here because of the draw heavy board, so i want him to fold.

      turn: bet around 2/3 pot and fold to a call or not?

      the flop is very drawy, so i would bet close to potsize. 0,75$-0,85$.
      Usually , I wouldn´t make overbets.
      If villian calls your turn bet, i´ll fold to a riverbet. There are too much hands, beating you.
