All seems pretty standard to me.

I assume you meant the SB was one raising every late position limp, seeing as they had >150 bbs.

If you noticed this then the BB did as well and probably thought (correctly) that his king was in front. Plus he only has 7 bbs and was probably going to play his suited king no matter what the action.

By the time the action is back on the SB you can't expect a fold. He has to call ~40k to win 185k. There's only a few hands you could have that have the SB crushed, not enough to elicit a fold.
