Depends how the players left to act are playing... Where were you in chip at this point of the MTT? what were the average stack? If you're no where near average stack then I would shove this. If you're average stack or better then I would fold.

Hey dirt, he said bubble to final table, therefore 10 players left, he's in the money (guaranteed $0.76). Also, easy to calculate average stack is 27k.
He's in 9th or better, therefore maybe $1.21

Being low stack, you need to make a move, so yes all in

Hi Manowar1800

Yes this is a good spot to go all in. You have only 6 and a half big blinds left so if you let the blinds and ante's eat at you for another orbit you're going to be severely short.
You have a reasonable amount of fold equity and a hand that genuinely plays well against opps calling range.

Also, the pay jump from 10th to 9th is pretty insignificant so we shouldn't be folding +ev spots in hope of making the final table.

Cheers, Chris.
