what stage is the tournament, beginning, bubble, itm? And is it a freeroll or a big buy-in (different players)?
When you are playing with serious playesrs in an early stage of a tournament I would definitely fold, because they would only do that with hands which make you an underdog like: AA KK QQ AKs or maybe QKs.
Easy fold, you slightly overbet this pre-flop. 2.5x raise from early position should be enough, if not one but two or more reraise came after you - fold. If its a rebuy tourey (where early stages is all about building a healthy stack) then call.
Later in a tourey, when theres enough info about the players at your table just use their stats (or any little detail that you saw when it came to showdowns) to made a good judgement about their range. Its all about their range.

What I think works great with all the pairs except from A K Q is to raise in the beginning to get players out. Than you will often get to the flop headsup and that's exactly what you want. Chances are that he didnt flop a pair and then you can raise him out.
I know it doesn't work always but it works enough to make profit with it

in most cases it is a fold though if you in a tourney and the big stack and you can afford to go against 3 smaller stacks than you go all in. In cash games it is a fold in the 9 games tables. because you early position and raised but got pushed by 3 stacks despite you showing strength it mean that they have to have the premiums. Also in tourney especially rebuys or other tourney early phase you have crazy people so going all in might be good. But it will brings more variance to your bankroll.

in freeroll i call all day long. with JJ u have more then enough equity to call vs 3 players who play a lot of hands ( players in freeroll). If u win hand u have huge stack so i really cant see fold here u have to win 1 of 4 pots to be profitable and i am 100% sure u will win more then that vs bingo players.

vse is a pro so you should definitely listen to him I still would fold JJ though, but when you think about it, many people would shove AK/Qs and not small pocket pairs, obviously not suited connectors (unless ur me and someone calls ur shove in cash game with T7s and hits 2 pairs that beat ur pocket kings, but thats for another topic ) so they most likely have only 1 out left, if that many...

Pretty much being a BRM freeroll says it all. It is a clear case of an all in, even if the whole table was all in The whole tourney is very loose with very silly calls from most of the people, especially in early stages. So you dont even blink before hitting the all in button
