How NOT to play this hand (I was wrong, right?)

Ring Game last night
My hand QsQc and I am the button.
Blind is 1000, I raise to 3BB total. Two players stay.
Flop: A,K,J Red
Player 1 bets 3BB, player 2 drops.

Any sensible player would have folded at this point??? This was a sharp operator I was facing, so he presumably already put me on a hand at that point.

I call. Blank.
Player 1 checks, I check. Blank.
Player 1 bets. I fold.

I could have saved 3 BB and broken even for the evening. Such is life.
