You should of raised pre flop. Never slow play QQ at 2NL especially in a multi way pot. I would bump it up her to at least $0.40. Problem with just flatting is you keep too many players in and hands like QQ play better against 1 player.

Hi Espada,

Firstly I like 3-betting for value preflop readless, flatting loses value pre and puts us in a multi-way pot out of position which makes it really tough to play well on some normally "good" flops like JT4.

Lead the flop (don't go for a check/raise or check/call). Lead turn.

As played I can't call the shove fast enough. You check/called at every opportunity, making your range look fairly week... the villain can have a hand like 88 and feel 100% confident he's good here.
