Live $40k Freeroll Preflop Spot

Around 33/36 players left, Top 10 pay, 10k starting stacks, 300/600 blinds, Table is 8 handed

UTG ~5k chips Limps
UTG+2 ~10k chips Limps
Folds to me BTN AJo with ~9.5k and idk what to do
SB/BB have me covered and were both pretty tight/in line

UTG has limp folded some, also raised some, have seen KTo showed down as one of their limps, I would assume raising top 10% or so and limping top 25% or so minus the top 10%

UTG+1 has limped twice, raised some, limp raised AA once, limp/showed down A5s in a limped pot, generally pretty passive

I have been slightly aggro, maybe perceived to over steal here.

Initial thoughts were 16bb is too deep to shove, although it may be slightly +chip ev I don't want to risk my tournament life, especially vs a weaker field. Also I wouldn't shove any hands here really. Folding seemed too tight, I didn't consider limping behind. So I raised to 2000 without much of a plan as I didn't want to tank too long, maybe folding to reshoves expect UTG. Any thoughts would be much appreciated as I don't play many tournaments!

Re: Live $40k Freeroll Preflop Spot

This forum will evolve as we go. But the hard and fast rules will be that this is for high stakes and deep stacked tournament hands. As a general rule please consider high stakes to be:

Online - $100+ (Rebuys $50+)
Live - $500+

Re: Live $40k Freeroll Preflop Spot

Are you really going to fold once you put in over 20% of your stack? Get the max FE and just ship it pre.
