Usually with 150/300 blinds and a >2000 stack, you should be pushing all in to steal those blinds, rather than raising to 850 or something like that. Simply putting in a raise enables your opponent to push you all in, which you do not want, unless you have a dominating hand.

No offense to you, but I despise this strategy.
Early in SNGs that is what everyone else is doing, trying to double up when they do not need to. If you fold every single hand, your mzone does not get into trouble until about the final 4 or 5.
My SNG strategy is normally play tight early on, hoping to win a big pot with a big pair or the nuts/close to the nuts. When it gets down to about 4 or 5 players, loosen up a lot and start stealing some blinds, and making more plays.
