You got the money in ahead, and at the time, it went in, you were realistically only losing to one hand: QQ. So of course its a bad beat. I do prefer to just ship it on the flop though. He is not folding an overpair, top pair or a draw, when you have so little behind, so why not just get it in and rock n roll. Its a small thing though, and the outcome would obviously have been the same.
May I ask, what poker site this is? Its kind of unusual to see a 25NL cash game, where only a few players start with a full stack. This and his limp then mini 3-bet with KQ makes it look like a pretty fishy game. Not a recommended line with KQ obviously or for that matter any hand
Questionable play, but also a bad beat. When Hero raises to $1.00, there =was already $0.60 in the pot. Villain needs to call $0.75 to win $1.60 which are not bad odds. Hero would prefer Villain fold so he should raise more to at least $2, IMHO. Villain leads out with a pot size beat and Hero has functionally a 2x pot. I would shove, given that I will call almost any turn.
Villain making her higher two pair on the river is a suck out, no doubt.
Think about just how stupid the average American is. Half the people are dumber than that, George Carlin RIP

Surely your main intention was to steal the blinds from the last position of the table.
You were lucky in the flop to form a double pair, so paying the pot bet is a good option.
In this hand we can see how the villain tries to make you fold your hand on the turn.
When the villain pushes his hand, he is paying for odds.
But let's go back to the beginning, what hand can make a re-x2 to a 4bb opening?
Surely a top pair (AA or KK) or high connectors of type AK at most.
Then we must include in its range high combinations that do not match a coordinated board and we must also add many bluffs that want to show strength on the turn.
The movement of the villain receives a standard call most of the time.
In this case the villain having a bigger stack is exerting all the pressure against you.
Sometimes you will find yourself with superior hands as in this case, but for the amount of money that exists in the well, the call becomes a profitable move.

Or any kind of silly nonsense, he is goofing around with, trying to get you to believe, he have aces or kings. 77, T9s, KTo. Aanything, that a bad player will limp into the pot with and then loose his mind, when he get isolated. Probably not complete trash though.
