      Merge - $1 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP: $490.74
      CO: $98.50
      Hero (BTN): $47.48
      SB: $88.68
      BB: $322.10
      UTG: $135.15

      SB posts SB $0.50, BB posts BB $1.00

      Pre Flop: (pot: $1.50) Hero has Q:diamond: Q:club:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $2.87, fold, BB calls $1.87

      Flop: ($6.24, 2 players) 3:club: J:club: 2:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets $4.68, BB calls $4.68

      Turn: ($15.60, 2 players) 7:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets $11.70, BB raises to $23.40

      Am I committed? Are there enough hands in his range that I beat? like Jx and draws.

      Is there a better way to play this? Maybe just check back turn and call/bet most rivers?

      I have never played with this strategy so high, so this is just my non-expert opinion.

      Preflop I think you should go for a smaller sizing. With our strategy we should aim at stealing the blinds more and that means that we are going to do this with a weaker range which will result in people 3betting us more often and by raising smaller we lose less when we fold, also don't build a big pot when we have a weak range.
      So I'd just make it 2bb here.

      On the flop I'd make it $4 here.

      As played, don't really think we can fold the turn here and I'd play for stacks here.
