Ok, here goes...

Raise preflop - This is a bad play. 2 x BB in a NL cash game, especially with the blinds this low is asking for trouble. You should be making a minimum 4 x BB raise, not 2. This would have definitely pushed out the BB, who has every right to call with low suited cards

The flop - You make a terribly weak bet here. This flop should not be scaring you at all, or it wouldnt normally as it is unlikely anyone holding a 6 will not call a 4 x BB raise. Then you come into a raise - raise situation, and this must be seriously worrying you. Also you are out of position, meaning you will be first to act on the turn and river and you gotta be asking yourself "I am willing to call bets on the turn and river when I dont have a clue where I am in the hand?"

The turn - You are making a weak bet here, hoping to only get called and to see a free card on the river. At best I am checking

The river - You could easily have lost more, as the guy with 6's should really be raising into you

I think you fell into the trap of being 'married' to your hand and didnt wanna lay it down. QQ is very nice, particularly in NL but you should be worried when drawing to only 2 outs and calling down

Review the hand again yourself and ask yourself what your opponents would be raising with, as you lose to any player holding a 6, 88, KK and AA

Thanks for the imput on NL (I wouldn't have let the BB in for only a single raise in NL) but if you read the top, it is a Limit game. Please review and let me know how to play it in Limit.

Sorry I misread that as NL! Great avatar btw!

You didnt do a great deal wrong in that case. I would have re-raised on the flop as well, and the call by both players would prob put them on an 8 or a str or a flush draw

I would also also have called down with little confidence on the turn and river, cheap and worth it for the pot odds

I would say you need to reraise on the turn and raise on the river but the player with pocket sixes probably would have called but there is an outside chance he/she would think you had the striaght and folded. Other than that, there wasn't much you can do except fold. THat's the thing about limit hold em. It's hard to bluff at limit hold em.

Unless villain is a maniac, I think I check-call the turn.

Aside from that, I'd have played it identically.
