$1.50 6max Turbo - Tough spot with 10s

I have recently taken a trip to the real micros and started to grind $1.50 6max SNGs. We are already 4 handed and it's only the start of level 2 which gives an idea of the level of play.

I know the beginning stages of a SNG are about preserving your stack but this particular spot had me wondering. I am the chip leader so winning this pot would take us 3 handed and I would have a massive chip lead. But on the other hand am I ever getting it in good here?

Annoyingly the HH converter wasn't working so had to post as raw HH.

fold in my opinion. At the beginning you no need to take too much risks, wait for a better spot

easy call without any significant reads on villain being super tight. most ppl rather induce with QQ+ here, so you are left with a range of 22-jj, AJ/AQ+ (and possibly more hands that you dominate). against this range you are doing way too good to fold.

Reshove. You have an average shortstacked recs range crushed, and also far more fold equity than you'd expect versus other bigstack (obv you should have no fe, reality is the rec population calls in these spots with hands they don't want to get in with versus big stack).

Think this a shove or fold spot, calling commits almost 1/3 of your stack and creates an effective SPR of ~1:2 for the BB. If the flop comes with any overs to your 10s (pretty likely) you probably have to fold to the BB if he shoves.

For me this is a fold. You have over 100 BBs and have only invested 3 in this pot so far. The call from the BB suggests a fairly big hand and you still could be behind the initial shover. If you fold you leave the option to go to 3 players with lots of blinds on the bubble, so plenty more opportunities for better spots.
