      I was not sure of Villain's range so I folded to be safe. Weak game? Against a tight range, I'm totally crushed.

      I'd expect that Villain has AK, AA, KK, QQ if he's a solid player. As you're a coin flip with any pair, I'd say caution is the best course.

      Hello EinsteinFranck,

      Without even knowing the guy of course it's fine to fold. Especially if you think he is rather tighter there. But neither ain't wrong if we assume that he is shoving loose there to Call it down.

      To avoid the variance folding is most likely going to be safer.

      Best Regards.
