      With 18.5 BB left and 2 limpers in front of you.
      It is mathematical wise to Push PreFlop in this case.

      You raised to 6BB, leaving you with 12.5BB.

      If Both players called, you instantly pushed no matter what on the flop came. The potsize is 1.5 times bigger than your stack. No doubt about this.

      When only 1 player called, it is still an instantly push preFlop and PostFlop. Because the Pot and your stack is ~ equal so you have to push as the Aggressor. The only difference is that you got more Equity PreFlop simply because you do not see a flop like this for example.

      So your push is justified although Pushing PreFlop is a must next time in this situation ;)

      agree with Gerv
      especially, given that we need to add 1BB to compensate for position
      with AJ its almost always more profitable to push pf)
