Well, It's simple to decide. If you're short stacked you can consider playing low pairs and low suited connectors more aggressively.
Shove or not, depends on how big are your opponents, your position [e.g A7o at the SB with 3 - 8 bb on your stack] why would you min raise? shove and pray.
But you have 11bb at the button, with AKs, you want more players, and you have the position to fold. min raise, or 3bbs raise, and let the others pay instead of having them folding. You need their chips and not them to fold.
My theory is this one, but offcourse it changes with the flop etc..
