to call. 2 people have alot better chance to knock out one then just heads up! And when it comes to being in the money your goal is to make as much money as possible so why not move up one in the money rung? Especially if your a big stack. Hope ive been of help!
I disagree with your point on the aces.
If you are have a nice stack, but still want to continue winning chips (which you're going to have to do to win the tournament) then for the love of god raise. If you limp, or just call the raise with your strong hand you're allowing those more marginal hands to enter the pot. Just for example, we'll say 56o. If you don't raise and you let this hand enter the pot, they've got 15% chance to beat out your aces.
Now, if you raised the pot, in the money....anyone with half a brain would fold and you would be in a position with AA against another big PP.
