A~ CALL and see the flop (or re-raising small to see where I'm at is also a valid option for me)

B~ FOLD no other choice

C~ LIMP hate early position without a powerhouse hand ( for the reasons faced in A & B above) and the chips are still so deep that I would be looking for trips to get paid off. Might well still bet it post flop depending on the texture of the flop.
"Cash game win big pots , lose lots of small pots" is my style. In a tournament my play would be different probably.

A - I too would call and see what the flop brings. but why did player 1 fold? he always protects his blinds and should have called for pot odds, if no A or K comes in the flop you are good, player 6 will act before you and you have to put him on a AK, AA, KK or JJ. everyone else wil act after so so if playes 6 checks I would bet half the pot as long as the flop has no A or K to see where you are at. I would also bet the same if a Q flops.

B - Fold.

C - I would raise at least 3 or 4 X BB to get rid of any Ace rags.

A - Raise to about 60. You probably have the best hand now but you don't want to play this hand multiway.

B - Easy fold.

C - Raise to $8

A - Limpers are calling with semi-decent hands, maybe bluffing but doubtful, Raiser is holding split high cards maybe K or A with lower J or another Q.
I would re-raise to 30 for a bite, if you get a big bite its an Ace, a smaller bite means K maybe Jacks.

B - Raise :P

C - All-in :twisted:
