Doubled up early one when someone limped in with QQ in early position, and i had 33 and hit my set.

Another one of those when I really wasn't sure if I did the right thing or not, regardless of the result of course.


I stop the action in the hand as it is my turn to act next

Personally i reraise, maybe even shove this, the initial raiser is the table big stack so is probably raising lighter than most, the short stack who called all in doesn't need much of a hand, AJM just called so i don't see him/her carrying on if you reraise/shove, if the blinds wake up with monsters so be it. The only thing which would stop me would be a read on utg, which says he doesn't limp there light, but otherwise i shove.
My second option would be calling- certainly not folding here.

I had just moved to the table, so didn't have much on anyone, but I had seen the big stack before, I had him down as tight pre flop, aggresive on the flop, which meant if I call, I am really playing just for a set, because he is going to bully me off the pot afterwards. Me having position probably worked against me, he is obviously going to bet on the flop, and it is either shove or fold from there on.

This time last year I would have shoved all my chips in no doubt, at least I had a think about it this time, not saying what I did yet, want to see what some others think first.

I am thinking shoving in would be the right play as well, i completely agree with Shandy

Call me conservative, but I'm probably folding here. You have an M > 30, so it's not like you have to play just to stay alive, and the risk against four other players (plus the unknown quantities in the blinds) is just too great. Any A-K-Q-J on the flop is going to be a scare card for you, as will any straight or flush draws.

What's likely to happen here is one or two players will be either knocked our or crippled, and you'll move further up the money ladder. I say leave 'em to it.

I folded in the end, One of them had a pair of 8s, and one had AK, The mAK won hitting a King on the flop

I know the results aren't really important, Think I did the right thing though, although to be honest I am not sure a better spot came along
