Info on V's & H's image:
V1: Unknown 40s white guy who has been at the table for about an hour. I know all the regs in this player pool and he isn't one of them, but so far he seems to be playing similarly to an average reg. I played one pot with him in which the effective stack was $500, I opened TT $15 from HJ, he 3b! $40 from CO, and I called. He cbet $60 on a flop of J-3-6 two-tone; I check-called, and then folded to his $130 bet on an offsuit 6 turn card. He showed me KK. He probably views me as TAGy.

V2: 40s white-guy reg who typically starts the $3/$5 game weekday mornings. It's now late Sunday night. I've never seen him play the $2/$3 game, and there are currently two tables of the $5 game with an open seat so I know he isn't waiting to get in his normal game. He has been at the table for about 2 hours and seems to be playing his typical solid style, with the significant exception of frequently making very small sized raises over limper(s). We played a pot where there was an MP limper, V2 raises to $8 from the LJ with $180eff, two regs called from CO & BU, and I 3b! $55 from the SB with J T . The limper folded, V2 called, CO and BU fold. I cbet $50 on A 5 9 , he insta-jammed, and I folded. He likely views me as a TAGy reg.

Sunday night casino game, $2/$3 blinds, $700 effective stacks.

H Q J UTG $12, V1 UTG+1 calls, V2 CO calls, BB calls,

($44 after rake) Q J J

BB x, H ?

What's your plan here? What line is most EV?

Let's assume the action goes as follows:

H cbets $15, V1 quickly raises to $55, V2 cold-calls, and BB folds, now H ?

What's your plan here?

Thanks for your thoughts!

    I would re-raise $155 and hope to get called by the case J and/or some monster combo draw.

    +1 what garland say. I would bump it up a bit since we are so deep. if 100bbs we can get cute and just call the flop.

    +1 to raising. To me this looks like one of those spots where villain is either going to have a J here or some kind of pretty strong draw that he's not going to fold. A third player in the hand too means that there is a strong chance somebody has that other J.

    I don't think this is a spot to small cbet flop. When our river range is going to be very polarized, Vs are going to bluff catch any reasonable sized bet. Also, Utg1 will connect well enough to call one street and start turning hands into bluffs as the board favors both villains range more than yours. And bb has hands to check raise and barrel. VS tough opponents in general I would be checking most of my range here, but not QJ.

    As suggested, get value here before one of the 17 cards come that could slow trips down.

    What would be the best way to play this if V1 just calls and the turn is 6?
