I encounter these situations a lot when I'm just a bit over x10bb in level 3 and I have a decent enough hand in late position(i.e. Button or Cut off). My thinking goes like this, If I bet x3bb this will leave me shortstacked + I probably have to bet the flop even when I miss. So, I think I'm better off going all in preflop if I'm raising. But is this really worth it for 75 chips?

How do guys play in situations like this?

I think I push, but I also raise 3x BB at times and play position.

12.5X BB, you still have room to manuever. I think you have just enough to make a standard raise and play position.
