I guess the push is really read-specific (read: only do it if they will fold most of the time).

Just be glad people are willing to call your all-ins with cheese.

A) don't be results oriented
b) check

The blinds aren't nearly big enough to warrant a push with A2o. A2o is an awful hand.

This is a glorified bad beat post. Double bogie.

Two calls ahead of me doesn't make me want to raise here, especially all-in, and especially when you've got 10x the BB.

Your hand doesn't look like it's necessarily going to hold up if you're playing it for value, and there have got to be better stealing opportunities elsewhere.

The only reason I could think of for raising with this hand is if the table was incredibly passive and happy to fold. Neither MP nor CO have stack sizes that say they have to be intimidated.
