Hi fp!

I 3betting in this spot as you did. However, I prefer betting a bit smaller here, about 120 rather than 130 (3x the raise plus 1x for the caller). You have position on everyone, but you don't have a made hand yet. When V5 4bets, I would just fold and wait for a better spot. His 4b is huge which limits your options. Calling, then folding on a missed flop is not going to be profitable. So you are left with folding or moving all in. I doubt you have much fold equity if you move all in.

Without a read, I would not expect the villain to be 4b like this with AJ, AQ hands that you dominate, but more likely with AK and pocket pairs. Against the pairs you are a slight underdog. So, just let it go and wait for a better spot.

I hope you noted V5s bet sizing.

GL and have fun at the tables!
