      BU pfr is 0, so I´d just call and hope to check it down if you miss on the flop.

      All-in PF with AJ off is not the way to go. I would, however, fire a barrel on the flop, to drop BU fast.

      You dont want play oop with AJ, and bigstack oponent only called behind you. You want play only against the shortstack

      I don't agree with that. We get into trouble when we call here in this spot with AJ out of position because we've got a top pair type hand and we miss the Flop two of three times. Our equity is the strongest when we can play with less oponents. So I prefer pushing preflop because Bu doesn't show up that he´s got a strong hand because he calls.
      As played, I like a bigger value bet on the river. I prefer 7$.

      ;)

      I´d push also, but BU pfr is 0, so he could easily hold here TT+, AK, which he won´t fold.
      Postflop game is passive, so mostly you´ll end up checking it down against one pair hand, unless he holds monster.
      So that ś why I think shoving is wrong here.

      Bu doesn't raise, he calls twice. So the pfr is uninteresting for us. The BB pushes and we could easily shove. :)

      You´re probably right. Since there isn´t shown 3-bet %, then I can´t assume that he is draping with monster hands and sample size isn´t also that big.
      So shoving pf is fine.
