This looks like one of those hands where no-one did too much wrong. Comments on my line?

** Game ID 27337499 starting - 2007-07-25 20:02:18
** Mace Windu [Hold 'em] (200.00|400.00 No Limit - STT) real money

- mwl sitting in seat 1 with $517.50
- THEACE sitting in seat 3 with $1460.00 [Sitting out]
- Nail sitting in seat 4 with $1925.00 [Dealer]
- loopy sitting in seat 8 with $1860.00
- pebbleking sitting in seat 10 with $3937.50

loopy posted the small blind - $100.00
pebbleking posted the big blind - $200.00
** Dealing card to loopy: Jack of Diamonds, Queen of Clubs
mwl folded
THEACE folded
Nail folded
The blinds are big enough to be worth stealing.
loopy raised - $700.00 How much to raise here because i) I want villain to fold and ii) I don't really want to be pot-committed (this in retrospect)
pebbleking called - $700.00

** Dealing the flop: Ace of Spades, 10 of Spades, Queen of Diamonds
loopy bet - $350.00 Leading out with anything gets me pot-committed. I should probably have shoved here already. I don't see what checking will achieve in this situation.
pebbleking raised - $700.00
I'm pot-committed with 9 outs (4 kings, 3 jacks, 2 queens). I reckon all of them are clean, and there's a slim chance I'm already ahead, but I'm really putting villain on an Ace.

loopy went all-in - $910.00

I'll post the results and villain's line later.

You've got less than 10 BBs, only one hand behind you, and any preflop bet essentially makes you pot committed, unless you're willing to let yourself get to the "chip and a chair" level.

Here are the results:

Villain calls my all-in, with A6o.

Turn was a Q, River was a J. And I take the pot.
