It is justifiable for sure. You have a decent holding when it is folded to you and you're putting the pressure on the last two to put in half to 2/3 of their chips in. Just got unlucky with the run out.
In posts like this I would like to hear why this post was made. I want to see RiverLord90 looks on the situation, what do you think about in this spot.
To be honest I never fold here, of course it depends how often you play/steal blinds from BTN, but you didin't write it, and your agressive factor is useless because number of hands you have played is incompareable to your opponents. (it's not only this tournament/table)
As others have said pretty straight forward and easy jam spot. Its not even like, we can sit and wait for other players to bust, given that we are among the shortest stacks already. On the other hand we are not so short, that we dont have fold equity, and both players in the blinds seem somewhat tight, which is good, when we are jamming a hand like K8s. We are looking for folds in a spot like this, but getting action from a hand like A7 is not the end of the world either, since we at least had two free cards + our flushdraw.
