Blind vs. Blind ICM spot

Final table, 6-handed in live $50 rebuy tourney. Payouts (relevant) are 2000, 1200, 775, 400, 200, 50. Stack sizes (relevant) are 300k, 100k, 300k, 100k, 1M, 180k (hero).

Blinds are 6k, 12k with 12k big blind ante. Hero in BB with A6 suited. Folds to villain in SB who shoves his 1M chip stack. Villain hasn't been getting crazy out of line, but hasn't been afraid to bully with his big stack in a few previous hands.

Question 1) If I assume he would play TT+, AK slower (trying to keep me in with a smaller raise or limp) is A6 suited high enough in my range to call it off? I know it seems like we're all short stacks vs. 1M chip guy, so I should really be trying to take any opportunity to double up and fight for first, but given the massive blinds and steep payouts, should I let the 100k guys bust first, then open myself up to flippy spots?

Question 2) What is an appropriate range to put live villain on in this situation blind vs. blind with his massive chip lead?

Thanks!

Literally any 2 cards, at least that's probably the correct range. Maybe top 90% of hands. He may or may not slowplay some hands but I think he shouldn't and usually will not slowplay AK, nobody slowplays AK PF 15bb deep effective. His slowplay range looks like JJ+, maybe TT+ maybe QQ+ but not much else and I think he doesn't slowplay any Ax ever.

Not the biggest ICM expert but I suspect this is quite close because it's obviously cEV+ and when you fold you will still bust in 6th place pretty often. Probably a fold but we do need a calling range and it's not quite clear what it should be.

You can icmize it but I suspect Ak is going to be close A6s would be a terrible call

Re: Blind vs. Blind ICM spot

The ICM pressure is heavier when more short stacks are in the table
Here you have 2 shorter stacks so more pressure from ICM

Easy fold, my icmizer license has expired but if I remember correctly you have to call something like QQ+ (even AK is a fold sometimes)
