Is it ever worth it to play AJo from early position?
I think it's better to just fold it otherwise you're stuck playing a hand that could get you into serious trouble if you flop good out of position.

What do you think?

early? bubble? late? reads on others? chip stack?

those will be my determining factors. Early in a tourney... auto muck. Mid-late, can be totally different story, depending on the situation.
