do you think it was ok to fold to his defense?, he was tight and is one of the leaders of the premier qualifier ranking so i just decided to fold this one

if the player was playing tight, while your hand DOES have some potential, you're behind any hand with an ace or any pocket pair.... and a tight player will basically have one of the two every single time.

I'd muck and find a better spot, where I knew that I was ahead... to get my chips into.

Hero needs 35.7% equity to call. Vs. {JJ+ AQ+ KQs} Hero has 30.7% equity.

Seems like a good fold if the read was on point.
