      I run this hand in sng wizard and It's really a easy fold into ITM and I would fold A2s even if the villain raised all-in with 70% of his range.
      In my understanding I should fold because there were a short stack and play here just premium hands against cheap leader.

      Please help me to improve! Despite I made 2 pairs the good move was move preflop!

      It depends how he is playing but this hand you have to fold, especially being the mid stack. If he was more agressive you could call with a little more than premium hands, ATs or A9s

      A2s looks like an easy fold on the bubble. Even if you think he shoves any 2 here what’s unlikely is in a 50c I wouldn’t take the risk.

      I agree as this is an unecessary risk you are putting yourself into equity wise. Yes you might have a good hand, but you have to look at the tournament not the hand only. I would only consider this if SB was abusing heavily his CL.

      You have a clear short stack and the the blinds are high, so there is no reason to gamble here - especially on the calling side.
