Yes and a good fold to boot.

He has 888JJ while you would have had 88877.

You only use your best 5 cards.

Hi austerror!

Yes, if you would have stayed in the hand, you'd have lost. To determine which full house is higher is based first on the card rank for the 3, then the two that match.

opp 1: 888AK (trip 8's)
opp 2: 888JJ (8's full of J's)
you: 88877 (8's full of 7's)

opp 2's hand is best, yours is 2nd best and opp 1 is the worst.

Hope this helps.

John (JWK24)

P.S. Great fold preflop.
