      I know in this case we can either push pre-flop or raise 4+3BB, but what really is the best option?

      Is the push pre-flop actually recommended?

      It's actually very recommended. ;)

      If you raise preflop instead of push, you commit yourself to any flop and your opponents see flop for free. If you on the other hand push preflop you will pick up the money or get called by worse hand.

      I see, but that is particularly for when we are sitting at the blinds, correct?

      Exactly. If you're sitting in late position however and you have position postflop you can decide between raising and pushing, I usually decided on my stack size.

      Push on any position with AQ as playable hand imo!
