Default Nit or nuts...?

New to the forum and really hoping to fill some gaps in my game...thanks in advance for the help.

Quick review of setting/situation...

NL live ($20 bounty) tourney, $140 entry w/ re-entry thru 4 levels, 20 min. blinds. 70-100 players. $6k starting chips. Nothing going thru first couple of levels, fairly active/aggressive table, I've got a fairly tight image, as usual...missed early on a few pots.

At 2nd level - Blinds at $50/$100.

The hand:

Me - $4600 chips, mid pos -

one limp directly to my right by a newbie to the tourney group, first time seen 'em.

I raise to $350.

A call directly to my left from $4k stack (a guy I was heads up with in the past week at final table), SB (~ $6k) & BB (~$4k) both call $350. Limper pushes all-in for $2800.

With three behind me I know I have two options...push to iso or fold.

This early, what to do...?

pretty straightforward fold.

if he's good enough to make this move light, he's very unlikely to openlimp. you're running into a big pocket pair most of the time. occasonally AK if he thinks AK = AA, which some people do.

I know this is totally results oriented but here's how it went down...

First caller pushes and BB pushes too. Initial limp push guy turns over and the other two show :Kx :Qx and BB has

Of course my 9's were good and would have held up for a huge pot. I guess just wondering given a push would have iso'd and/or been up against these hand AND it was a re entry tourney should I have taken that chance with an aggressive and amateur group...?

I don't seem to be able to capitalize on these types of chances with my style.
