      I'd bet around 1.30 on the flop actually. It's a very coordinated board, your sizings should be on the bigger size with all your range since villain will often have equity to continue vs small sizings. Against the raise, let's think for a bit. Does he raise worse? If no, what's your equity vs that range? What are your implied odds? You need 33% equity and you are very unlikely to see a free river card while also very unlikely to get action if you make your hand.

      I think you should just fold to the flop raise, as weak as it may sound, unless you think your opponent will have quite a few bluffs in his range, in which case I prefer 3betting as a semibluff. Vs a set you have good equity and you block QJ. You can't ask for a better situation to 3bet bluff and stack off as a semibluff.
