Your play is fine.

Your stack size is so short that there is no way you can really do anything else except move all in with the 2nd best start hand in Hold 'em.

Even after the guy wit A7 calls you (as about a 70% under dog), and gets very lucky to out flop you, you STILL had outs to win this pot about 40% of the time by the river.

This is just simple bad luck for you, it happens.

You played it correctly. You have a short stack and want to do whatever you can to isolate one opponent... which is shove (if the other comes along and you win, you triple-up).

With a category 1 hand and a short stack, if it's me, I'm shoving immediately every single time.
