      Then the most important thing for you to realize is that no matter what you do it can't be optimal, since you have no idea how he plays.

      Most people's response would be to either 3-bet and go broke on the flop or call the raise and check/shove a blank turn - check/call a heart turn with the 2nd nut redraw, based on the assumption that there will be enough fish raising Jx and enough regs raising draws/bluffs on these dryish boards to warrant felting overpairs. Of course you will get stacked by sets in the process, but it's okay. Hard to get away from that without reads.

      Hope it helps.
