Considering the context is not impressive, but I did it just to be able to say that I actually did it 😅
I was 288/472, playing for 466 tickets, so it was an easy decision.

I have folded Kings before, in some sat where it wasn't worthy the risk, close to the tickets, but never aces.

What's the toughest fold that you remember?
Apparently the game continued, one of the remaining players collected a combination stronger than a pair of pocket aces, and this inspired you to post your action for discussion. However, I think your strategy is unprofitable. After you there are only three and they, just like you, are concerned about the approaching money. Only the player on the button poses a serious threat, but there is no point in risking a third of the stack with a questionable hand. In this situation, going all-in has positive equity.

I have no doubt that you made the right decision.The ticket is the only thing that really cares in this case.

Amazing fold at this sat tournament!

It was an easy decision, indeed. But imagine the temptation of going to play this hand close to the bubble of a non satellite tournament... 😅

It's the Holden Manager 2. Is old but it still works.
Now is available the HM3, but there's many others. I'm not sure which one is better really.
If you search, there may be a thread about huds that could help.

When the players with a big stack and the player occupying the 466th place receive tickets of the same value, then the risk does not make sense. All 466 players will take 1st place upon receiving a lucky ticket.
