      There are couple of reasons:
      - We're almost 200BB-s deep and I don't want to get it in pre so deep, so 3-bet/folding kinda sucks and turns my hand into bluff
      - With just a call preflop makes my hand is somewhat disguised
      - I'm IP

      Additional question to judges: How should I play flop?

      calling down is fine if you didn´t 3-bet pf
      He can easily try to bluff you with missed draws or valuebet yourself KQ/AK
      I would usually prefer 3-bet pf since player would very often just b/c and once they 4-bet then it is quite easy fold since they have there mostly KK/AA and you can play bigger pot ip with very strong hand and also it helps that you have initiative
