      Villain is one of the biggest fish I have ever seen (I won 2,5BI from him in 60 hands).

      He started 3-betting a lot. Would you justify a call preflop? What would you do on the flop?

      Well, you have position and if hes super bad I might call the 3bet since I can stack if I hit. Specially if he has been 3betting a lot.
      On the flop I like your play, I think we want a big pot with top 2pair vs a fish yes?

      What was it, 66 or KK? KK is pretty sick lol

      If he starts 3betting almost everything I start minR pf to call much looser 3bets.

      Because you are 200bb deep I might call hands like that too from time to time, but I prefer suited hands more..

      As played NH.

      call preflop is fine imo if you're 200+BB deep

      Flop re-raise is good aswell, it depends a little on your history. If he donkbets alot on flop and you reraise those donkbets alot (I do it vs. some villains) re-raising here is definatly a good way to get more value :-)
