      Well when you raise the flop that big in a spot they can't even have top pair your pretty much hoping someone has KK,AA which he might even fold to such a overbet or a lower set, in which case the money is going in at some point anyway and your losing value against all his bluffs and weaker holdings that are drawing almost dead against you.

      So your best option here is to raise to 7$ or just call to keep the other guy in and give him an option to bluff raise or something stupid like that.

      You can also 4-bet pf QQ for value and call shove.
      MP3 would call/shove with worse hands
      On the flop I really don´t like that big raise size. Your hand is very strong and besides KJ/J9 there aren´t really too many draws, so I´m fine raising it 7$ to see like I´m bluffing
      Turn shove is fine.
