I want to get some money out of the tourney, especially a freeroll where I am trying to get started with a bankroll on some site.
so yeah, I believe there are times to fold big pockets
There are times to fold. The best odds
your really going to get is about a 80% favorite and that is over the long term. Meaning you still lose 1 out of 5. If there is a multi way pot, those odds drop.
I might not fold in the beginning or middle of a tournament, at a bubble or final table, if your not at risk, it certainly can be considered.
