Why no push here?
I know that AJ is not the greatest of hands to play UTG as you're only bound to be called by either a dominating Ace or a mid-high pocket...but considering your stack size any hand you DO intend to play, you are pot committed to playing to the river as you are in push/fold mode. This is probably the best hand you're going to see and the blinds will be going up soon also, putting you at even more of a disadvantage.

Additionally the other two short stacks may call with lesser Ace's, hoping you were pushing your mid pair and they catch.
