You can make a case for either situation, but it really depends on the payout which is not listed. You paid $2.20, so if 8th pays $2.25 and 1st pays $300 then push all-in because Emilio is probably just using his stack and A9s is probably good.

If instead 8th pays $16 and 1st pays $50 then you are better off folding, use position, and wait for the shorter stacks to get taken out.

Those are the breaks, there's no guarantee the shortstacks losing and you're not far behind. You gave yourself a chance to make more than the minimum.

with JJ you had to push, especially against the same guy. That is just the breaks.

Something isn't right here. Supposedly there was 1 to the bubble (payout starts at 18 per OP), that would be 19 players left. Anyone ever see a full 9 seat table with 3 tables left?? At Stars ??? (never happen).

Looks like it had already reached 18 (both hands shown were 9 seated).
