      Howdy,

      I think it's fine line to take.

      Your equity on flop is not so great against a tight range - sets+AJ, but it boosts up if he can do that with more random hands, so I like calling against unknows/opps who are not making moves on such a flop.
      If he's loose fish who's just spazzing around a lot I don't mind 3betting and playing for stacks here as he may have worse redraw, a lot of Jx hands and who knows what else.

      On turn he doesn't give you really superb odds, but assuming you still have the redraw and stacks are deep I think call is fine.

      Easy call on river ofc.

      Good luck!

      you can also 3-bet flop and playing for stacks, but since you´re deep I´d also take the same line
