With 7bb and antes involved I don't think you have any other good option except shoving.

Bracelet Winner

Hi kykkylik!

With 7BB from UTG and AJo, I'm going to open-shove. I need to accumulate chips to try to get into the top 3, then to try to win the tournament. I'm going to shove a reasonably wide range here (a bit over 25% of hands). 22+, A2s+, A7o+, etc. AJo is well within this range, so I'm going with it.

Unfortunately the button woke up with a better hand, but the correct decision was made... to shove.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
