good catch. I was thinking the same thing.
When reading this i was reminded of a hand between booth and Ivey on High Stakes Poker. Ivey had KK and booth had 42s the board came something like 3d6s7d and booth shoves 300k. for a small pot of about 24k. Ivey couldn't call. I know it is a different situation but sometime you have to lay down a hand.
I am not surprised that he only had two pair but if i had the king with that board early on in a tournament i might shove and show. It sends a message for later when you have to shove.
The villain could have easily had AK, KQ, KJ, KT. with any of these hands his play wasn't out of line until the shove. With one of these hands what action does he think he will get from you on that board. I don't think you gave us suites but that could explain a lot.
Lately i have found you will find donks to call all in shoves when you hold the nuts more than they will call value bets. I don't know what it is but in the first two rounds of a tournament i have found people don't take me seriously when i ship the nuts.
p.s. I wouldn't have shown that hand until after the other hand was shown and he had a K.
