If you had 40bb and started folding AK and middle pairs I would think that is a bit tight, short of that, keep folding and wait for your spot.
Very often live, people play WAY too loose. It is a much slower game and hands like AJ start to look great when you haven't played a hand in an hour. This is a big mistake for online players who are use to a lot of action.
This is a great example:
Lots of people bust out on day 1 of the WSOP
. You could have played NOTHING and still have 35BB on day 2. You could have only played AA, KK, QQ, AK, and increased your stack on day 1.
Both live and online, many times people actually hurt
themselves because they just get bored and get into hands they shouldn't be in.
Until the blinds get large, antes start, and you have 15BB left "tight is right", keep folding the trash.
