Curious to here what people do here, the button was playing pretty decent and both him and the sb were owning my blinds.

I'd take the probable race here, just because I don't have much more time (down to 1450 after I pay the BB, 1250 next hand). If you get lucky, he was stealing with K4s or something, which might ameliorate the pain from the times when he's actually got an overpair.

I'd say his range is wide enough that the times he has a pair is somewhat moot

I push. I think if you fold here the remaining players have good enough odds on any future push by you to call with mid-level hands. This is likely to be the best spot for you to take a stand.
