It's MTOPS Main Event $15 with multiple Day 1's , 10k starting stack , 5 mins blind level

I am very short with only 7BB , and I think I can shove because :

1) There is too much dead money in the pot and only two players behind me to act, so not a bad situation

2) The limper is ultra loose and he doesn't have many chips . So he might fold as with 2.8k I have little fold equity but if I fold here and become more short then all the fold equity will be lost

3) Even if the loose preflop limper call me , I think I will not be a much of a dog like he can have :A X or to or some / stuff

What do you say should I go all-in with this pretty hand while I still have chance to make the limper fold as he will have to call 40% of his stack which can sometimes make him fold plus my hand is not so bad when called against his limping range

What are your thoughts

Being as short as we are and still being far from the money, we have to take spots like this to try and accumulate chips where no-one has raised before us and we have a strong hand like QTs.

Judging by the few hands you have on the limper, he's probably not limping to trap with AA exclusively, so you actually have some fold equity vs him despite your short stack and even if you get a caller, you're rarely going to be less than a 40% favourite to double your stack. When everybody folds, you increase your stack by 50% and get to 10BB, a huge increase!

Thanks Andy and I thankfully shoved but the limper just can't fold X for his 40% stack. Maybe I can fold if I had like off-suit, right

I'd still jam QTo, it's closer but I still think it's a profitable shove.
