If your stack is large enough just shove (most) any two cards,
27 still beats ak 30some % of the time
if he's too nitty he'll fold too many hands too (with under 10BB, expect shoves with a number of weaker hands than JK) so many free blinds avail.
you never said how much you raise vs these BBs, (could be too weak?)
I'd only small raise with premium hands hoping they shove
otherwise you need more aggression (shove or be prepared to call)
...or just fold, sometimes its not worth trying to steal
remember this when you're BB too
how many ppl are just stealing- is a shove likely to fold them?
you need to understand peoples ranges, pot odds
, M value
if you gave more info- relative stack sizes, blinds, villain tendencies it would get you better responses
