Easy fold but if you had this the next hand, when shorty was in the BB, I think it becomes a push.

I usually go ahead and push. I'm probably too aggressive in these spots.

UTG isn't in all that much a worse spot than you and if doubles up you are in trouble. I don't think this is a terribly -EV push and sometimes ICM doesn't really tell the whole story.

It really depends how loose the blinds are. If they are calling with stuff like A3o then its a clear fold. It's hard to get a read in this type situation, but I'd lean towards folding.

For example pushing is -EV against the following range:

(33+,A7o+,A4s+,KTs+)

I wouldnt be at all shocked if the blinds were that loose....also note that hands like KQo/QJs arent included in that batch and its still -ev.
