      Fine by me, shit happens. Just ran into QQ with 33 myself on Q35r when I was pretty damn happy about stacking some tight fish's KK+.

      Do be careful preflop tho, 3betting KQo is only good if he's capable of calling the 3bet with a wide range, regardless of how often he's stealing preflop from the SB. You'll encounter regs that steal close to the same % from the SB, yet they'll simply fold and fold and fold to 3bets all day long, so when they don't fold, you're behind with KQo. That means it's usually better to call with it and keep all their crappy stealing hands in the pot, and instead 3bet a polarized premiums/crap range that you know what to do with in case he decides not to fold.

      Hope it helps.
