Default 88 in EP weird stack etc etc

Stars 22r. I'd come back from 1 BB by winning flips and what not, and after got my stack back went card dead and sat tight for a while. I haven't played a pot in a round or two. Note table is 8 handed.

You're play pre here:
A. Fold
B. Shove
C. Raise/call
D. Raise/eval (what kind of situation would make you raise/fold?)

Raise small and evaluate. I think an open push is cEV-.

You are right. It is significantly cEV+, but I think raising works better than pushing 15xBB UTG.
