Sometimes the A4s doesn't hold

If you're going to play the hand you have to shove pre-flop, you're still getting called anyway, because this is a 1FPP tournament and very shallow stacks to boot, but its better than calling a decent % of your stack and then folding if you completely miss.

Call me crazy, but I'd probably pass here. You're getting amazing pot odds, but with less than 8 BBs, you probably wanna look for a spot where you can be the first one to enter the pot with a shove all in. You don't wanna be calling with such a short stack, hoping to hit the flop, then check/folding when you miss (which costs precious chips), or getting it all in with something that looks good but is actually second best (which costs you your tournament life). It's shove or fold here, I think.
