Ya there's obviously a case for raising PF, but I've taken to limping with AK in the early stages of MTTs.

I've done the whole raise, c-bet and it makes no sense to me in these stages when all you'll win is ~100 chips. I like limping, and only getting involved if I flop a very strong hand like above. Huge payoffs that way.
