I believe your right in saying that folding at a home game with multiple all-ins would likely be better.
I was wondering if anyone would consider folding in this spot in order to try and limit variance? or is this just crazy thinking?
That ^ is just 'crazy thinking'. These are 1500chip online tournaments we're talking about here and there's not alot of room for play in them (ie. in early levels if you raise up in just one hand and then fire out a c-bet you're already getting a bit low in chips).
You won't find a better spot than this for getting all of your chips in... and whatever way you can figure on getting all of your opponent's chips in the better!!!!!
I think when you're talking about folding AA in early levels you'd be referring to a deepstack tournament.. something like WSOP
MnEvent if you''re Phil Helmuth and are facing multiple opponents who are allin.
Back to the hand in question.
You want to get all of your opponents chips into the middle. I think you just shove it allin here. You might get called by QQ and if you were to just flat there could be cards on the flop that will kill the action for you (ie. an A or K).
The shove could also look like AK getting it in in hopes of just taking it down preflop. If it were a deepstack tournament there'd be arguments for flatting here but it's not, it's a 1500 chip donkament..... get it allin!
