      Why would you want to fold it to one player , at worst you will be 70/30

      The other thing is at that level what would he be pushing with , and would expect Ks , Qs and maybe AK

      No, against a set you are 94-6

      But anyway, I would call here, because i would put his hand range on 99-AA/33/22/55

      I disagree with that! I've seen sooooo many top pair **** kickers on my aces and tptk, that i think it's +ev to make the standard Unam/PS-raise (sorry Unam) because you can go all in with them in the early stages about 50-70% of the time, and you come across a set 10% per set-limper, which is about 1/3 of total limpers, in my experience.

      That is in pokerstars 22 and 16turbo's...

      I don't know the difference between those and 33, but the difference between 11 and 22 is veeeeeery small.

      I just make the bigger raise, because i mostly get at least 1 or sometimes 2 or more callers and they mostly fold to my conti-bets. but thats my experience in 2 dollar sng's on titan (my BR doesnt allow higher buy ins).

      Sorry , I am wrong , was refering to preflop

      with his limp/call preflop would not put him on small pair as most good players at this level , would look for odds , ie 5 players calling & looking to hit set

      would put him on suited connectors or mid pair

      is the standard sng or turbo , but still calling on turn & put him on semi bluff & him putting you on AK or something like that

      It is hard to muck the Aces but I think you are beaten to the weel or a sett of 5s. If not he is bluffing, but without som info on the player (first hand) I would fold an kick his ass later in the game
