Hi Espada_Nu.4

I wouldn't shove this, I would be looking to shove hands like J10s+22+Ax+. My reasoning for this is because we are on the direct bubble and players 1, 6, 8, and yourself all have similar, small stack sizes.
If we had 10 bb's I'd be shoving all in, but we still have enough time for the other shorty's to make mistakes and knock themselves out, so ultimately this is why I prefer a fold rather than a shove.

Cheers, Chris.
