      Hi,


      Actually i would suggest you raise it even bigger preflop over to like $0.28. On the flop betting 2/3 is probably plenty given how dry the board is. When the Q peels on the turn, check/folding is fine, chances are one of them has the Q and you can't get value out of many worse hands at this point.

      You can't lose less money in that hand without losing value against these guys' ranges, it's just unfortunate that one of them had a set, and fortunate that a Q came on the turn, as it saved you a lot of money.


      Hope it helps.
