      There were different opinions on this one. I think normal 1.5$, than push any flop better on 1 caller ?

      well, given 2 UTG callers it`s ok i guess. I prefer having 4 limpers to push pre-flop, but I think both plays are ok

      Its 50:50 for me. You explained it yourself very well. So both plays are correct. But you do not have to push any flop with a normal raise and one caller. On a 7 8 9 maybe 2 suited board, I wouldn´t contibet, since they often limp/called a Pocket Pair and will not fold.
