You were getting to the shove phase, and he had you covered 2:1. A little aggressive for my taste, but a fairly common play by someone with a quality starting hand faced with these circumstances. It was your life on the line, not his.

What I think happened: Everyone folds to SB, which proceeds to min raise. You push all-in, perhaps he thought you were just trying to steal the pot and he had a decent enough hand to call you out on it. He also though even if you had a fairly good hand he was probably at 60/40 and took the risk. Turns out you were way ahead and he got lucky. Tough break.
