      I have an aggressive image (I guess).

      Preflop aside - I probably wouldn't steal again with Q2s vs that player.

      Generally speaking I think that's the board it's hard to coldcall three bets on.
      I put him on a draw very often (I think with his low AF he might play it passively) and all the draws miss so they fold to a three barrel. Every T folds, almost every J also folds, I think AJ and JT are the only hands that call a 3 barrels - others fold or he raises them somewhere as the board is drawy and he has to protect with e.g. set of fours.

      Is this an ok play?

      If you have an aggressive, stealing bluffy image, you are getting called by nearly any pair, especially in blind wars.

      "Throwing good money away after bad" is my opinion of your river play. BB just doesnt seem to want to go away.

      you likely get calldown a lot of times, since all the draws missed
      So I think you can c/f turn or c/f river
      you can´t bet river for value and I think you don´t have enough fold equity to fold out better hands
