Much better to shove! If shorty wants to play that bad make them pay full price. This is if you have big stack, players left to act are shorter, and sitter is way short. Push ATC and if you get called and lose you will still have enough chips to make it ITM. When you get called and win then that is okay too!
Min raise most of the time looks weak. I squeak one in here and there but they look strong when I do it . Rarely Min raise too, more like 2.25 minimum.
