Raise w/2nd best hand to isolate?

ok, finally got around to reading theory of poker.

Slansky recommends that you raise with 2nd best hand to isolate to give yourself the best chance of winning.

I'm trying to think of how this applies to SnGs.

mp limps, you're co-1 and limp w/ATo, co, button, and blinds are in.

Flop: 4TQ rainbow
sb checks, bb bets 3/4 pot, mp folds, HERO min raises to hopefully isolate BB? [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

You have 5 outs. Lets assume everything worked to plan and you're HU w/BB. he should check to you on turn. you take a free river card if you didnt improve. check/fold if river misses??? [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Am i getting this right?

If not, can you come up with a SnG example of this theorem? Or does it not apply to Party SnGs because stacks are so shallow?

I dunno what co-1 is, but if its the first hand of an SNG, fold ATo preflop. Fold the flop.

Does this apply to NL?

I think this mostly applies to limit. There may be spots where this applies, but in general, it will mean that the original bettor bet far too little.
