I don't like blanket logic like this, if you lose you're automatically out, if you fold, it's not like you're giving up 1st. Sure you have less of a chance but you can still come in 1st if you fold. Sometimes it's right (especially for tourneys that have a top-heavy pay structure) and sometimes it's better to just take the money (say everyone ITM gets at least 50 and 1st plays pays 60). Obviously this isn't a cut-and-dry scenario, but it's not like folding gives up a chance at 1st place, and even if you win the hand you aren't guaranteed 1st.
