You didn't fold a royal flush, you folded queen jack of clubs in early position.

With 16 BBs you really can't be raise/folding. Since you don't want to call a shove (except from the BB) a fold is probably the best option. Although if you're going to raise a suited connector on that stack, early position is the best place to do it from as it looks so strong (so people are less likely to resteal).

Don't be results-oriented And look, you wouldn't have gotten paid off anyway.

+1000

Unless you have a hot line to Ms Cleo the psychic, on an infallible crystal ball, you have no clue what you will have after the flop.

If you want a SURE FIRE method to NEVER fold a hand which may turn out to be the best hand by the river, I can give that to you right now though:

NEVER FOLD

Of course you will also LOSE the maximum number of hands you can possibly lose...
