This opponent in a 10$ Fifty/50 also wasted no time removing himself from the tournament in the very first hand. Also not an easy man to bluff

Nice hand man. I know nothing about tournaments but the very basics. Your villain, as you stated, not an easy man to bluff was leveling against you, I assume because he saw/knew you are a solid player and elected to level up against you.
Maybe villain is a very good player but had shown a fatal weakness: let the ego speaks instead of rational behavior. So villain led itself out of the tournament for pure pride.
Being aware of the basics I would’ve folded baby pocket pairs 80% of times in the first level (from EP) and if I decided to play the rest of 20%, I wouldn’t have called a 3-bet, and if I go postflop I would be folding more than a gazelle running away from a tiger.
In villain’s place I would be aware you are a regular player, a solid rock, and would avoid playing against your range. Well played mate, bad for him and good for you.
