I raise 3000 (pot was 6000) at this time and the button puts me all in for the remainder of my stack which is 4500. I think I'm committed and call he shows ppQ's and I don't hit my set and bust out. I've thought about it and I don't see a way out other than folding to his reraise as I thought it was a good flop for me. What do you think? his stack was double mine.
Probably would have folded pre-flop after the re-raise, way too many hands that you are either an underdog to or at best a coin flip. I'm not sure what type of tourney you were in but generally, if someone reraises a big pre-flop raise, they are usually beating pocket 99's.
When you say "raise" post flop, do you mean bet or had the villain come out betting?
If he came out betting, probably was a mistake to raise. If he checked and you bet, you bet too much. If you came out betting 3000, out of position, post flop with over cards on the board, huge mistake for that many chips.
