      It was indeed a very good fold. :)

      You only have 2 Overcards here with no draws. So you have a maximum of 6 Outs here. Your opponent often holds at least a made hand here on the flop (Pocket Pair in his hand or he hitted the Jack for example). Sometimes they already have 2 Pair (nearly drawing dead) or a Set (drawing dead). And in a few occasions he is betting this big with a draw here. But we do not want to find out, since most of the time we are way behind here.
