Same thing here... strategy article says pushing with category 5 hand is good.. but is stack size short enough?
Normally I wait until I'm around 8BB to start push or fold on bubble.. do I have enough for another turn of blinds?

Poker Stars $1.29+$0.21 No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t75/t150 Blinds - 4 players

Pre Flop: (t225) Hero is CO with 6 6

It's a shove for me. Even if I knew I would get called.

We're the player that needs to do the work here and 66 is easily a strong enough hand to be shoving

Sometimes we will run into monsters but many more times we are ahead or flipping. This is a +EV play long term.

The guys have done a good job of summing it up already. Folding would be quite a substantial mistake so I'm happy that you shoved regardless of the outcome. As the significant short stack at the table we have to take this great opportunity to take down the blinds and if we do get called were very much of the time flipping.

Nice hand, Chris.
Fwiw I'm shoving any pair in this spot
