The best play is based on the table dynamics and how madison is generally playing.. Anymore info?
^ Yeh, and what's up with Madison's pre-flop raise to nearly 4x the BB ? Is that standard for him? If not, I'd read that raise as strength with AA,KK etc. If we read the raise as strong, I think we have to fold. If 4BB is his standard raise, you can shove or call. Because of the size of the pre-flop raise in comparison to your stack size, you are only roughly getting the correct odds to call to set mine, and I would frequently fold but you can call here though because you are getting great pot odds, and since the pot is multi-way, you have a better chance of getting paid off when you hit your set.
Since though, the pot is so inflated pre-flop, shoving can be very profitable and I prefer shoving to calling.
So, if 4BB is standard raise = I like to shove here.
If 4BB is not standard = I would fold.
It does depend on the player as others have said. In normal circumstances I don't like my TT here, and am going to fold, especially online. I rarely play online but folded JJ just recently in an MTT to an early raise, and was right to do so.
