nearing the FT: 88 facing a utg 10bb shove Empty nearing the FT: 88 facing a utg 10bb shove

I'm currently a top 3 stack w/ 15-18 players remaining I believe.
Villain is 20/15 over 160 hands so decently active, however I do believe that at this stage of the tournament he will be shoving tighter than normal utg.

I feel like getting in this much of my stack at this stage of the tourney isnt a good thing.
I feel like I have lots more equity in the tourney than getting it in in this spot. I think I'm more dangerous with my current stack.
If I call and win, I can open more but I can still do that with my current stack.
If I call and lose, its tragic.

I'm kinda harping on this spot bc I think a lot of players make a mistake snap getting it in here bc it's profitable (77+, AJs+, AJ+ here according to Nash), but other factors, mainly our current stack manouvrability, are important to consider.

seems this would be close in nash calc. Since we are fairly ep ourselves its prob 99+ without icm thoughts. The was I look at ICM tho is first to look if there is an immediate pay jump, which I don't suppose there really is. If not I don't really adjust for icm. But since it is so late there is some consideration, and especially knowing that villain is a little tighter than usual since its late its prob a fold for sure.
