45 player SNG on stars. 8 left, pays 7. Shorty shoves and KJs is worth calling imo. Big stack bully is behind me and unless
After posting antes/blinds hero's stack was about 9BB (about 5200 chips) so basically it's a shove or fold. And since it's a bubble, the hand is mediocre and big-stack bully is on the left I'd just fold.
KJs has about 8% advantage over 50% range and about 16% advantage over 70% range - if you call the big blind effectively you are flipping so calling the big blind doesn't look like an option to me.

I'd probably fold to the big blind's shove since if you lose to the big blind and the short stack survives then you bubble whereas if you fold you are still alive and the short stack is still shorter than you.
