Just wanted to share this moment.  I'm just playing a $7,500 deep stack freezout on betmost for once. $50+5 byu-in with 141.I just won a nice pot with JJ and was dealt QQ. At that moment there were about 135 players left. Blinds were 15/30.First guy raises to 120, next folds, next raises to 420, next one thinks "Oh crap!". That was me looking at QQ. I thought the re-raise would indicate Aces or Kings, maybe AK (which would scare me enough, as looking for the coin toss isn't really what you're looking for in this scenario). Knowing the common level of play in the internet i was pretty sure a all-in was nearing before any further cards would be dealt. I folded and immediately was very proud of this tough move, as i knew it was the right thing to do.Three guys went all-in before the flop in the curse of the action. First raiser held TT, reraiser AA and the third guy 88.Flop came with Q5J in clubs giving the aces a flush draw, turn brought a lousy duck of hearts, before the T of spades made the first raiser win.Too bad for QQ. Would have been 15k instead of 5k chips, though. Still, one of the best laidowns i have made. Right now there are 100 guys left (top 20 getting paid out). Hope it will work out for me ;-) Still, one of the best laidowns i have made.

For the case you want to know how it worked out after that for me: Have a nice read.I'm still pretty nervous, as i never played such a high staked tourney before.I am playing almost no hands, because i don't get many decent hands or better and because of a very agressive and quite loose preflop play overall. I played AQs which resulted in a split with another AQ and held AA which resulted in a blind steal as nobody called my 3 BB raise. Later on i stole with a 3 BB raise of A9 as the cutoff. That would be about all the action i've seen since QQ.Break ends soon. I hold a pretty average chip stack with 79 players left.  I'll keep you updated. EDIT: Just got a terrible bad beat off of AQs vs. 9T which set me back to 2k chips. This will be a hard fight now that the blinds are 75/150.Blinds are 100/200. I was push or fold with 1600 and went all-in with ATo vs. KQ and prevailed. 3500 chips now. 56 players left.Still no a good outlook, but it seeds some optimism.Guys are dying like flies right now. 40 left, but i won't go far with my 9 BB if i don't catch some cards soon.¬†

You had your reasons to lay down and you did.¬† So it was a good (tight) fold for you, just unfortunate that you would have hit and won.

That was a big laydown but I would have pushed. Keeping aggressive when your on or near the bubble is what separates the guys who 'just scrape into the money by the skin of their scrotum' and the players who make final tables consisitently and have a big chance of taking down #1. Nevertheless, big laydown.

I would say great laydown, if so many all in's preflop.  My best laydown would be JJ on 997 flop.  Insta all in by raiser (A9) and insta call by someone, who had the other Jacks.
It's poker....

i think u made the rigth decision  because i think is better fold a premium hand than eliminate from the tournamentsometimes you have to be willing to take the risk tho would have to depend on how others were playing what hands have they been raising on are they aggressive etc

Not sure I would have but then that's why I porbably haven't won anything for a while. Twice yesterday I folded Q 10 Suited to and early raise and Q9 when I was going to go all in to steal to blinds. Both times a player had AA. Good folds?????? maybe freflop but not but the river both hand the other 3 Queens fell out

Good decision, bad result. There are times to be aggressive near the bubble, but not when you are fairly sure you are behind and are not at risj of being blinded out.
