I was playing an freeroll MTT and my stack was about 8BB.
I wanna know if I should have done something different.

Especially in a freeroll, whenever I have 10BB or under and any pair, I'm doing one thing and one thing only.. shove!

I agree this is a shove, I am shoving my entire range here (meaning any hand I would come in for a raise in this pos. I am open shoving) I think it is a big mistake to raise fold pre or post flop so the optimal play for a playable hand is to shove imo.
