What should we do here with 24bbs? Shove, raise to 450-500, fold?

Hi George

I cram it in but I only cram it in because 66 plays so poorly post flop. I think limping behind here is ok too but I would prefer to shove it in and take down it down preflop.

When we cram it in I feel like villain will call it off some of the time with hands we're flipping against and some hands we have crushed ( smaller pairs and the old Ax ).

I think that either limping,raising and shoving are all viable options but my favourite one would be to get it in and add that lovely pink $500 chip to our stack more often than not.
