the stakes don't matter if a move is dumb, it's dumb at any stakes, I don't care if it's a freeroll, a $1.50, $15.00 or $1,000 tourney. And whether you have the button or not, how can you think your KQs is good there?
I've done a bit of reading and nowhere have I read "try not to fold your button". I've read to play your button strong, and play a wider range from your button. That does not equate to not folding your button no matter what happens ahead you... and by the way, the power of the button is completely erased when everyone is all in preflop.
