10 $ SNG at party. Blinds 50/100. Hero has 650. Think we were 7-8 players left, dunno about av. stack which is unfortunate, but I hope I can get some answers anyway. Button has 1740, SB 610 and BB 980. Everyone folds to Hero who finds 22. Hero stold last pot from the button. Push or fold?

I am by no means an expert, but I think this is a push situation. There is a good chance that you have the best hand, and 150 in blinds will substantially add to your chip count and help you survive another round of play. The Button may be pissed that you stole last hand, but he has no money invested, so he isn't likely to defend here.

As for the blinds, your raise will be a large portion of their chips, and I don't think they would want to put it in without the goods. Of course, if someone has a better Ace than you, or a pocket pair, you are likely to be called, but you are a coinflip against most pairs. I see you raising against three players who would like to call you, but probably don't have the cards to be the sheriff.

You gotta make your move sometime; if someone wakes up with AK or QQ, that's that.

I think this is a fold, actually.

Actually, wait, I thought Hero was on the button, which is a marginal fold. From the CO it's a definite fold.
