Villian is recreational player, as his 3bet sizing pretty much says it.

Can we get away from this ??

Hi Justin,

Against a rec player whom we have no other read on, I think the answer is yes, we can get away from this. Think about the next best hand after yours, in this case AJ, and think about if the villain would play it this way? I think without reads of wild overplaying aggression, most villains will call the flop with AJ, not raise/get it in. Big draws, like KsJs may not check/raise the flop, and certainly may not play preflop in this manner either.

I would expect us to get shown AQ/QQ/22 the large majority of the time here vs. this action from an unknown rec. So I think bet/folding will serve us much better in the long run than bet/3B shove... at least until we have reads to work with.
