      Hmm, this one is tough. I guess I would play it same way, but I am not confident at all here. If button is stealing, you will force him to fold if you push... on other hand you'll do the same if you just raise. However he can call your raise with hands like AT, KQ, KJ and you want it, since you are favourite against those hands... while he could fold it to your push

      i don´t know how their steal and calling range at the lower limits look like but at nl50,nl100 or even higher i think it´s best to push here because we will often resteal hands like medium pockets Ax, or higher Kx as well and then he often gets the right odds to call. i don´t want to get readable

      Well, on NL 50 I also push most of the times, on Nl 100 I will do it even more frequently, I guess. But on lower limits, I tended to raise here more often... But, I think both moves are fine

      Since the BB is a BSS here, I sometimes would also push here preflop. But as played its ok as well, since 55-JJ, as well as KQ, KJ, QJ, JT and some more hand could have raised here.

      So nice hand. :)
