    Correct play.

    With that many chips in the pot and your stack size there is no other way to play it.
    Dont let a suck out change your game up.

    Stuff happens..I could get at least 5 more of these in this post before the end of the day.
    If it gets to you,your just going to screw up your other table or future tourneys.
    You know when I played my best? When money didnt mean anything to me,to bad I cant go back to those times.
    I remember playing live and this guy sits down and proceeds to triple his stack.
    He was playing so loose and at the end of each hand he would say "Its just money"!
    This floored me,cause I was still fuming over losing half my stack to a calling station.
    Had been sitting at this table for 6 hours and this guy comes in and runs the whole damn table in 30 minutes and leaves! If you can get to the mind set you got nothing to lose and every thing to gain. Its a mindset.

        Rule of thumb for me in any MTT is I shove if the pot is more than 25% of my stack.
        Its better to be the aggressor than the one calling a allin or big bet.
        For me I just find it makes poker easier to play.

          Obvious insta-jam on your stack size here (just over 5.66BB)...

          1) The dead money from the limp, plus the blinds, are a large enough chip up for your stack to be valuable for you if they both fold.

          2) You have no fear whatsoever of getting called by a better hand.

          3) Your short stack facing 2 larger stacks in a free roll means you stand a reasonable chance of getting called because either of the opponents (or both) might fail to recognize the chip loss you represent for them as being damaging.

          4) If you get "tricky" and just flat along to try a stop and go, you run the risk of allowing an opponent willing to call you pre flop to INCREASE his equity over the 20% or so he probably has (at most) versus your hand pre flop.

          so all signs point right at a "go" here, and you do that.

          Good Job!

          ...after that, bad luck sometimes happens...oh well.

          Do this often enough, make the right decision in the right spot, and you will be plus a LOT of chips in the long term.

          And THAT is what you should be doing!

              100% instant ship.... ship it so fast it makes your opponent's head spin. Correct play every single time.

              If you get unlucky, you get unlucky... do it every single time and you'll be ahead in the long run.
