    Actually this early in a MTT/SNG you're much better off folding A10o from early position.

        No dude,don't bet it bigger----FOLD A10o from EP,especially early in a MTT/SNG. It's just one of those hands that leads to more bad situations than good ones post-flop much more often than not.

        I know that you'll see players play hands from EP that make A10o look like a monster but just because THEY make bad/dodgy plays and get away with it here and there doesn't make it the proper thing to do. That's a very easy trap to fall into in these mini-micro stake games---thinking that you should open up YOUR range,regardless of position,because you see them doing it.

        If you exhibit patience and wait for the donks to come to you they will,much more often than not. Don't try to beat the donks at THEIR game,make the donks try to beat YOU at YOUR game.
