i do not realize much about poker, but i think there are 2 kind of players: Agressive or non agressive.
For those who like to play in agressive way, you should had called.
Of course that for these people, there must be a lot of luck envolved to get far, because many times they will find better hands (either by bad luck or really good hands).
For those who like to be non agressive and only play for safe moves, you did well, because you didn't know what hand your oponent had, and in this way you went a bit far than if you had paid and loosed (does not seem to be the case to hapen)
You must not forget that playing this way, you will go farther more times, but hardly get a really good place. Nevertheless i prefer to play like this.... (not 100% tight, but shurly most tight than loose)
This is the eternal question in playing tight or loose... It will depend on your likes and luck
