Never limp a pre-flop with the intention of trapping someone by provoking them to push, even if you are holding an AA. In other types of poker games, the advantage of trapping aces is that it has a huge effect when you entangle a fish in the net. In tournaments, if you manage to trap someone, you are 80-85% of the favorite to win, but you will have to win in 65-90% of cases just to get to zero, so trapping doesn't give you much of an advantage.So it's unlikely to be fatal if you raise and win only the blinds, and the result will be just as good in terms of your chances of winning the tournament.
