I think you played the hand ok.

Other options are:

1 - just flat calling the open on the button with deep stacks, keeping the weaker of the two ranges (the caller) in the pot

2- fold to the four-bet. If we perceive his four-bet range here as QQ+AK and potentially better, and I think that is reasonable, we can just fold. Its not a big deal in this spot.

Definitely not on the table is ripping it for 200bb against an under the gun's "get it in" range! We are going to be losing a lot of money this way.

As stacks get deeper, in position, our particular hand begins to lose a lot of value. So putting a lot of money in before the flop with it isn't necessarily our biggest priority.
