If you think, you can get away with min-raising without making them suspicious, you have exactly AA or KK, then minraise. Otherwise just shove and hope to get called. If you dont get action, you still increase your stack 25%, which is never the end of the world.

All in would be my only game. Guy with 50bb will call your min raise with really wide range, and can overdrawn you easily.AA is the best starting hand pre flop, but on the river doesn’t have to be. So, all in pre flop without question.

My AA and KK are constantly getting sucked out by 2 pair or better when I attempt to min-raise with a short stack.
My new and improved strategy is to open jam 3bet jam just --- jam jam jam. If they call with inferior and win - they would have won anyway.

Would you ever min raise here with a KJ off type hand or KQ suited type hand? I doubt it so almost exclusively with 10 BBs you will be folding or jamming. Any time you do anything other than that you could raise eyebrows since a min raise here looks stronger than a jam. I would just jam it in here and hope you get a caller. Your question, imo, becomes more of an issue with a little larger stack more in the neighborhood of 13-15 BBs where you could conceivably still raise fold if you really wanted to so there its more of a question of min raise or put it in.

I am considering only 2 possibilities.
When players often defend on the late position, button and blinds, play well on the flop, then you do not need to raise, only all in.
When the table is full of aggressive players, I prefer limp-all in. You get much more than just blinds if you are sure that your opponents will raise you. And then they will be afraid to raise you and you will be able to play a wider range of hands.

Easy shove. You're ahead of any pocket pair and Ax's that will call. Limp Raising all in unless you know someone in late position will raise is just too risky you're giving worse hand odds to call and outdraw you.

If minraising will induce a jam from other pocket pairs or Ax hands, then you can minraise otherwise openjam.

It's tricky since you are utg. Would have been awesome to have this hand as sb or bb but anyways, what I've learned is that this is a clear shove situation. You can try traping but it's hard as utg to do this, it's suspicious to min raise so all in and hope to get a call.
