The game is 4NL 6max and the game is very tight. 
Not a lot of action, lots of preflop folding, almost no 3 bets.
I get pocket Queens in MP and make a standard raise of 3bb.
To my surprise I get 2 callers and the flop is not favorable (Ac Kc Jd) so I decide not to C bet into 2 other players.

When the last player to acts bets I make the fold. 
Good fold or to tight?

Check-folding is fine in this spot. C-betting this flop is burning money, so good check.You're calling to chop the pot if a non-club ten hits the turn since you don't hold the Qc, so your pot odds are terrible. Good fold at 4nl.
