      17/11 31 ATS, 2k hands. I know I have to make a move here, but which line is better: direct push as I did, or 3x reraise and push flop?

      I like to raise to 2.5x here i.e $15. Shoving a 25BB stack in this spot seems a bit over the top to me, but then again i do still do it sometimes.

      I don't think you can really say "which line is better" anymore. I think thats a personal choice you have to make.

      I just push with AKo preflop imo, if you had a TT+ you could reraise to 3x because then you do not have to worry about shoving postflop with no pair no draw for example (if you had AK)
