Both easy pushes you only have 4xbb, you could try to pull a stop n go with your 66, not that its gonnoa do much, but you gonna need to take chances to double up.

The first hand u have 12 BB, I think this is a tough spot, I think I push with 99, but I could see myself limping in this spot, although I'm not sure it's the right play.

In the second hand I think you have to gamble with such short stack.

oops thought it said 150 not 50, i tend more toward folding these hands at thse blinds, if you get a raise behind you have to throw it away.

I folded the first because as you said there is a chance of a raise behind. I folded the 2nd because of there being in my opinion a good chance of an overpair. Are the pot odds too good to do this?
