early on in a tournament you are dealt JJ UTGblinds at 5-10, you raise to 40...a few folds then your bet is raised to 200 by a somewhat aggressive playernext to act another semi-aggressive player moves all in and he has you covered'i thought that both of these players likely had AK AQ or somethin like thatalthough i believed i had the upper hand i folded because even with the best hand i would be less then 50% to win the potturned out first guy had AQ, second guy had AK and the AK made quadsits easy to b happy with this fold as i would have busted out of the tourney, but is it a correct play?

I agree. Fold and get your money in a more favorable position.

You did good.I love folding jacks: before the flop, after the flop, on the turn, on the river.Usually, if i've gone to the river with them without getting all the money in the pot, I'm going broke because I'm priced in the pot. If I fold JJ, then I'm still in. If I go all in with JJ, then I'm the one betting, not calling. I've busted out a lot with JJ, and that's why I love to fold them.
