Default Any Ace? ? ?

Just wondering... Some people tell me that in a 5 or 6 handed game you should play ANY ace (ex. A2, A6, etc.) When do you fell it is ok to play any Ace in a NL Holdem Tournament?

I'll certainly limp with any ace, though I won't stick around much if pushed, even with the high pair.

Look at your position. You can never play to confident with Ax unless its suited or you flop two pair. Otherwise you can't stand a raise and even are forced to make some difficult calls. I will limp in with Ax in late position. It also depends on the game and how its being played. I try to not make it a habit to play Ax though x being under T that is.

I agree. In a 5-person game there is a good chance that ace high is the best hand. But if there is a raise and you have A2o you should fold

This page has a lot of information on it. But I was wondering if anyone could expand on it, or had any other tips besides percentages.
