well, first off, I hate limping in $$ mtt's from UTG. I'm either raising or folding.

From those blinds, I'm guessing that you should already be ITM. If so, you're at the point in the tourney that you should be trying to accumulate chips to get to the FT. I'd have made a std raise with it preflop.

Yes, you flopped top set, but there are 2 diamonds on the board, so you really need to bet the flop and I'd put in a pot-sized bet with it. If someone raises, you can almost bet that they have the diamond draw and if it's me, I'm calling their raise... as they'd have 8 outs going to the turn and 7 to the river (you're at worst a 2-1 favorite to win the hand going to the turn and 6.5-1 favorite going to the river if they don't hit the turn).

You may have gotten them off of it by raising preflop, you might not... either way, it's bad luck that they hit the river.
