I don't know what the payouts were so can't really give you detailed ICM advice but I can give some general advice on the hand:

You're the shortest stack, only 12BB with a M number of just over 5. This means that you should be looking for opportunities to steal dead money and double up if possible.

ATo is a very strong hand five-handed. You're facing a steal from the Cutoff. He should be doing this with a fairly wide range. AT is ahead of a lot of this range so I think that going all in is exactly the correct play. You have a decent amount of fold equity and even if you get called, you will still have a decent chance of winning the hand.

Think about it like this - if you had AJ and villain had AT, the hand would play out exactly the same and you would be favourite. If villain has A9 he likely calls and you would still be favourite.

Well played!
