Finale Table short stacked

10th player just got eliminated on 2nd table. 2 tables are currently merging. So our table is still 5 handed but were technically at final table.
Blinds are 6k/12k 600 ante
Hero BB had 50k A8o
Villian button 120k
Villian shoves all in pre
SB folds.
There is about 70k in the pot I have 48k left.
So 48 to win 118k 2.45 to 1
Hero decides to call his shove because I think im ahead and beieve his button ahove range is pretty wide. If he had a monster I dont think he shoves but bets 2 or 2.5 the blinds for value.
Anyway hero calls villian shows K10 spike the king we bust our 9th.

I think I made the right call because If I fold I have 3.5 BBs left after sb and dont have any fold equity. What do you all think right call or should I fold and wait for a better spot. (Which I'd only have 7 hands to get one)

    What is the pay schedule like? A call is fine but you got unlucky. Better how did you get to 4 BB? Did you just loose a big hand our were you blinded down? Try to never get below 10BB with 4 BB there is no pressure for others to fold

    I had about 17 BBs but got unlucky a round earlier with my AQ vs A7. I had about 7BBs then but was 1 person from final table. With 1 other stack at 3BBs. Chip leader had about 45BBs ( this is online)
    I have been trying to stop min cashing and run deep more so final table was a huge goal for me. Anyways
    Payout went 9th 295. 8th 455, 7th 545, and so on 1st was 4k. 55 dollar buy in
    Thats why I think being a little nitty here is ok. Yeah I've only got 7 hands till I'm forced into action. But I could easily be making another 150 or more by then. But now that I'm at the final table I want to win this thing and I need chips for that. I'm thinking how am I gonna get a better spot than this to almost triple up so I called. I watched another round of the table after I busted everyone was playing tight folding so likely would have been forced into it before someone got knocked out anyway.

    Were there no unraised pots between taking the hit an 4BB where you could have applied a little more pressure to on the others to fold? While looking to Final table is ok you should be looking to win and when others go into Nit mode is a good time to open up

    No there was about 6 hands in between these two and I had garbage the entire time. Other players were minraising everyhand pushing around chips which was why I decided to wait for the 3BB guy to be forced on which is what happened
