Default $10 SNG on Stars - Whats your line with AK here?

PokerStars GAME #00000000000: TOURNAMENT #00000062, $10+$1 HOLD'EM NO LIMIT - LEVEL VII (100/200) - 2006/08/18

Table '30184962 1' 9-max Seat #7 is the button
Seat 4: hero (5190 in chips)
Seat 7: 85Royal (6445 in chips)
Seat 9: Ntee (1865 in chips)
hero: posts the ante 25
85Royal: posts the ante 25
Ntee: posts the ante 25
Ntee: posts small blind 100
hero: posts big blind 200
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to hero [Kc Ad]
85Royal: raises 1200 to 1400
Ntee: folds
hero: ??

SB is a very small stack and bad player. Usually I do not like to get involved with big stacks when stacks are more or less even but I also think that if I win this hand I basically won the SNG. Would a push be here EV+?

Ist der Tisch noch voll besetzt?

Ich denke aber auch, daß ein all-in vernünftig ist.

Most people don't pop it to 7xBB with aces or kings. I'm okay with a push here. If he DOES have aces or kings make a note on him and move on.

Thanks for your reply guys. I was not quite sure whether the push here is +ev or not. Anyway, I did push and opp shoed J9s. The board paired his 9 and I went out in third. A little bit miffed but I thought that I had an easy shot at the $45 price money.

Positive Expected Value, simple as that, you very well may have him dominated.

What if the short stack only has 1 big blind?

In this case the SS is short but not completely gone so I call with AK, might be a LITTLE different if the short stack is all in on big blind next hand.

Call off a quarter of your stack to be out of position on the flop with no more information on the button's hand?????
Play to win! PUSH!
