$2/$5: 3-Bet KJs in SB?

Villain is a recreational player. Pretty passive, does some limping, when he opens from HJ it's pretty solid, something like KJo+, 88+. So essentially we're dominated by his broadway range and behind his PPs as well. We're like 36% vs 88+,AJs+,KJs+,AJo+,KJo+. Yes, he should not open this tight in HJ but he's a recreational player and does not know any better.

So... should we just play this as if he was UTG and just chuck our KJs? We're 200BB deep btw. Or it's still a 3bet because we have some fold equity?

    I would probably do it a couple times to test the fold equity and his flatting range. There is a chance he flats everything except QQ+ and we can take down a lot of flops if he doesn't hit hard. Maybe, maybe not. I'm not sure we really need to worry about this spot too much but if we can expoilt this V it's worth looking at.

    Us being OOP may negate the value but some people will let you run over them and only play back with the top 3 pairs.

    Definitely playing KJs in some way. I like what pokertime said about testing out V's folding frequency. I do like 3 betting, however even if he doesn't fold i still think calling is fine.
