Default Shortstacked, AJo flops gutshot, EP min-bets

Blinds 50/100. I have 1,288 chips, EP has me covered.

I get AJo in LP with an EP limper. I raise to 400, because the standard raise at the table of 3x bb is often called, and I want to increase my chance of folding the blinds, and maybe even the limper. Everyone folds but the limper, who calls.

Flop: K,T,6 rainbow. EP bets 100. Pot=1050, My stack=888. Call, fold or push, and why?

Raising to 4xBB or more is standard with a limper. Given your stack size, you might push or limp behind, rather than make a raise that pot commits you, but I think your play is OK.

I push the flop. You have a 23% chance against KQ and you have to put 30% in with pot odds. Villain's play is strange. He should probably push any flop. He certainly should push if he made a pair.
