Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

There is a player short stacked. I think that is not a good situation to get involved against others players. The short stack can push and the medium stacks can shove too. What do you think about this hand?

Hi ahcrata!

With KQo from UTG, on the bubble, I'm going to muck here. I want to be playing hands against the small stack, not one that can take me out. Also, since the top 3 get ITM and I'm in 3rd chip stack, I want to preserve this chip position.
If I could be isolated against the small stack, I'd play it, but with the two big stacks in the blinds, I don't want to take the risk without a made hand.
I would also play it if I was already ITM, because then I'm looking to chip-up to move up the ladder in any way possible.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
