you are playing way too passive post flop.
Why the check on the flop?
I'd bet around 2/3 cbet.
It's most likely they both missed the flop when we assign them a decent range.
When UTG & MP both are in the hand, you could 3bet bigger pre. I'd bet around $0.25/0.30
And why are you short stacked? Buy in for maximum.
The way you played post flop + the stack size, I can say that you are a very passive player & will be easily bullied out of your value hands easily.
And at that table most of the players were hunting you, instead of you hunting them.
Here's a tip. Try to find tables with short stacked players. There's plenty at 2NL. Most of the times do not sit with the ones with over 200BB+. And buyin for max & auto top up.

I agree with everything alucard said. theres no point in 3betting pre if your not gonna cbet the flop. i understand the flop was very connected and theres lots of hands that beat you. but you have position both players checked to you and there are still a fair amount of hands in there range that you beat.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: QQ on bad flop.
Agree with all of the above. Thread title says this is a bad flop for QQ. Actually it's a great flop for QQ.
As played, I think river fold is correct. Most of the time at least one of your opponents has an Ace or better.

I remember saying everything that Alucard has told you to him a couple of months ago and he is flying now.
