Here are some Hand Histories from a freeroll I was in. Couldn't get anything going and was short stacked the whole game. I'll post some hands and just curious what you guys think in regards to pushing. Just looking for any edge (have fold equity and can pick up the blinds.) I'll number the hands for faster reference. Thanks all.

AceHoldOn is this good enough to push even with a limper? Is my stack too big in relation to blinds to worry about pushing?
