Its a fold to me. KJo, after a raise and a call in front of you, you will probably be behind. By folding, you hope that the short stack get busted out and you can climb the cash ladder. Just unfortunate that the short stack double up and you become the shortest stack now.

On the other hand, you are left with less than 5BB, so you can still call. Even if the big stack win the hand, you will still be 3rd, and Bergische finished 4th. Anyway, with 5BB left, you have very little fold equity, I will start pushing when down to less than 10BB - any pockets, any aces, or 2 broadways.

The reason you even asked is probably because in your mind, you are thinking "damn, I would have tripled up if I called", which is result-oriented thinking. The previous post has already explained pretty much everything about this hand, and IMO you should be pushing almost ATC from UTG previously.
