    If it's a turbo I'm calling. Otherwise, I'm folding.

    I dunno, in a turbo I can see this being AT+ 22+, which we're ahead of. In a regular format, I expect this to be AK the vast majority of the time. I'm also a lot more willing to take risks for my stack in a turbo, because it's so easy to quickly find ourselves with 10bb.

    Tempted to just call it off, AQs would be much nicer though, most people show up with pairs here alot. This is a spot where a quick sharkscope can help you. If villain is a winner this is gonna be AK and midpairs alot that he is too lazy to play correctly. If you already got all the tables up you want I say gambool and reg 1 more.

    Fold, I see this move a lot more with mid pairs and AK then weaker aces

    Easy fold for me. Too early to have any feel for what the villian pushed with. No way I want to risk my tournament life with AQ after 3 hands. Fold and move onto next hand.

    How would things change if hero was holding AK/TT/JJ?
    I am hoping for answerss from ecperienced SNG/MTT players
    All posts are just my own opinion about a hand or a general situation... not advices on how you should play...

    Fold. You could very well be ahead, but there is no sense in risking your tournament life on the 3rd hand, especially with a hand like AQo.

    In a vacuum I would call with AK and probably with TT/JJ as well
    my (relatively small) sample size from memory is that I usually see AK or mid pair there

    On your place I will go fold. AQ off suited are not very good cards for going all-in on the beginning of the tournament. I mean it's very easy to the villain have AA,AK or some pocket pair like KK,QQ and for that reason it's better to go fold than to risk the tournament with AQo.
