Let s say that i m a beginner with tourney , how do you play hands like AQ,J,T off UTG or in middle position , when you have like 40BB in middle tournament(150/300 sb/bb).
Is it reasonable to bet 3 bb or what other consideration should i do?

First i'll say it depends on how loose or tight you are playing. Then i'll say that i've learned to fold those hands utg they can really get you in trouble. now middle position yeah raise it up. Be more aggresive with better position.

In the 2.20 tourneys they play pretty crazy as it's only 2 bucks. So tighten your hand selection in early position. And pay attention to the stack sizes behind you as well as your reads on villians.

Well technically when the bb is still 20 or 30 i tend to be a little looser than later , and usually i 3 bet those hands , though i rarely make a c-bet considering that is almost impossible to move off donks at 2 mtt if they have even just an overcard

Early in the game and in early-mid position, I usually fold these types of hands. At this stage, I'm looking to survive and pick up chips safely. Playing these hands early mean I'll be playing out of position and that something I try to avoid because I can get caught in odd situations early on in MTTs.
