      Is push okay here? Pot vs. stack is almost twice as big ? Would it be better for me to all in him preflop? But I was afraid he wouldn't call, thought he was just stealing blinds :P

      You reraised him 3x like you should and the amount of your reraise was less than 2/3 of your stack, so I'd say nice hand. You could also consider push because of your bad position, but I prefer 3x reraise. ...there's no other way to play flop.

      P.S.: I believe that you had some converter problems and you were actually sitting on the blinds, right?

      Both options would be ok here, so either push preflop (which is close) or push any flop, since you are pot committed.
