Interesting post. The ol' - damn this looks pretty, hand.

With 13bb's, the plan to 'push any flop' is not necessary. Nor is raising usually. Open pushing is marginal at best (+.4 vs "77+,AT+" ranges). Raising isn't horrible. Considering the minimal chip advantage in pushing, you have a decent hand to see a flop with. Assuming this guy will let us attempt to c-bet (which we won't if we whiff), raising even a touch less isn't bad...likely giving us four cards on the flop before we have to consider moving in or off.

But as always, with your stack size, retaining every ounce of FE is paramount. Folding this PF is horrible either.
