      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J, J.
      UTG1 calls $0.10, UTG2 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 6 folds, UTG1 calls $0.40, UTG2 folds.

      Flop: ($1.25) 6, Q, Q (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.30, Hero raises to $0.70, UTG1 raises to $1.10, Hero folds, UTG1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.95.

      Preflop was kind of standard. Flop was very weird. Normally a Q would be a dreaded sight, but two queens does mean it's less likely villan has a Q. He donk bets, and I raise (I probably should have raised higher). He reraises me and I tank. On one hand, villans range can be anything, given his preflop play but I do believe he might be playing some random Qx. On the other hand, perhaps he saw my raise as weakness and decided to exploit? . However, if I call this, I'd be pot committed. I folded in this particular situation, which I think is the right situation. I did already bet half my stack already, so I hope it wasn't mathematically correct to call anyways.
